Making Improvements!

Thank you SO MUCH for your donations so far to Mercy & Sharing's John Branchizio School in Port-au-Prince.  I wanted to send you a brief report about the school and how your money has been spent so far.

First, enrollment at John Branchizio School has increased to 647 students in grades preschool through 10.  These students study a core curriculum sanctioned by the Haitian Ministry of Education and receive a hot, nutritious meal every day!

Second, we have installed propane fueled stoves to cook the meals.  These are rare in Haiti and much more clean and efficient than the traditional charcoal fired cooking methods prevalent in Haiti.

Third, we are making repairs to the well pump and chlorination system in order to continue to provide clean water for the students and staff.

YOU HAVE MADE a huge difference already!!!  Next on our list are new desks, tables, and a computer room.  YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT will make these improvements possible.  Education is the key to Haiti's future and we are honored to partner with you in this important work!

Thanks again!

Progress So Far

Dear Friend,

Thanks so much for your generous donations to help us improve Mercy & Sharing's John Branchizio School in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.  So far, we have been able to repair a storm damaged roof, remove a building damaged in the earthquake of 2010, and install a wall to secure propane tanks used for cooking student meals.  These repairs and improvements were only possible because of your contributions -- thank you!

There are over 600 students at John Branchizio School who would not otherwise receive an education were it not for Mercy & Sharing.  This is why your support is so crucial.

Next on our list is installing a computer lab to connect older students with the outside world and provide valuable computer skills to help them find a job.  Computer literate graduates are much more likely to find employment.

But we can only do this with your help!  Please continue to give when you can and also tell your friends about this project through email and Facebook.  We are a small organization and can only spread the word about our work with your help!

Thanks again for your compassion and support!

Warmly,

Louis

Fall Semester Concluding

Student
Student

Thank you for your support of Mercy & Sharing's John Branchizio School!  Enrollment has grown to 627 students who gather every weekday to study the core curriculum of math, reading, writing, history, French, and science.  They also receive a hot meal each day.  For many of these children, this is the only nutrition they receive.

Recently, the inspector of the Haitian ministry of National Education and Vocational Training visited John Branchizio School and was very impressed with what he witnessed.  He did recommend, because of the size of our school, that we employ a nurse and have an infirmary for students who may be ill or if there is an emergency. We have contracted with a nurse to provide services for the students.

Your gifts this Christmas are crucial to the continued success of John Branchizio School and we are honored to partner with you in this important work!
