Books are the Foundation for Students' Success in 2012

The students in Cite Soleil are ready for 2012!  The Book Project is off to a great start in the new year.  Recently, International Action's Director of Operations in Haiti, Dalebrun Esther, led the first book-curriculm follow-up meeting for the teachers in Cite Soleil schools. In short, we found that the teachers and school directors are amazed by how well the children have responded. Representatives from 10 new schools came to the meeting because they had heard of our book program and its successes. They want to join.

4,175 books were donated to schools in Cite Soleil in 2011.  We will continue to donate even more in 2012. However, we realize that the way in which books are used is just as important as the quantity of books donated.  Our goal for the Book Project in 2012 is to have 30 more schools receive our books and integrate the books into their curriculm -- using the materials to teach basic reading, writing, and comprehension.

We look forward to the opportunities 2012 will bring these children in Cite Soleil.
