Dear friends of EIM,
The spread of the novel coronavirus over the last several months has impacted communities all over the world, and Haiti is no exception. The 2019-2020 school year is undoubtedly one that will go down in the books as a test of our students’ and teachers’ resolve. The pandemic brought yet another round of school closure, after political instability forced us to close our doors to in-person classes during a large portion of the fall.
The good news is we’ve made some changes to our end-of-year exam process and we expect to complete an abbreviated version of testing under the supervision of our teachers in Port-au-Prince.
As a result, we are still looking forward to seeing many of our students progress to the next academic level in the fall! If this year has proven anything, it’s that nothing will keep our students from reaching for their educational goals.
And of course, we couldn’t have pulled off this difficult school year without the perseverance and creativity of our great teaching staff – they are the backbone of EIM. Shout out to all the amazing teachers pictured here! (Pictured above: Enock. Pictured below, in order: Alex, Omene, Omega, Richardson, Wilkens)
Dear EIM supporters,
Thanks to your generous contributions, we are back up and running again! We were able to seamlessly resume classes after the temporary shut down late last year that was brought on by public protests and demonstrations. EIM students are grateful to be back in class, and are studying extra hard to make up for lost time so that we can conduct our yearly exam process on time this summer.
The political situation remains fragile, so please keep Haiti and EIM in your thoughts. You can continue supporting our journey this year at our GlobalGiving fundraising page.
With many thanks,
