Dear supporters of Home Roots,        

College Les Sophos d’ Haiti finished the first half of the school year at the new location. All thanks to your support. The students finished testing on December 17 and are now on vacation until January 3, 2022. Les Sophos currently has 86 students, 40 boys and 46 girls. Some of our old students returned, but we received students from the new location which previously housed another school. We will work to increase the numbers for the next year to bring the student body to where it was and beyond.

We wish you and your family a happy holiday season.

Dear supporters,        

College Les Sophos d’ Haiti was forced to close at the end of the last school year due to threats of violence. Because of the support you have provided, we were able to finally open in October at a new location. Additionally, Institution Source Mixte Divine, our other partner school, also opened for the new school year. Many challenges lay ahead for the students and teachers alike at both schools. However, our goal always is to keep the kids in the classroom and remove the money barrier to education. We are looking forward to a successful school year at both schools.

Dear supporters,        

We have been working diligently to reopen College Les Sophos d’ Haiti, which was forced to close at the end of the last school year due to threats of violence. We have succeeded to obtain a new location and start the new school year this week. Much work lies ahead to raise funding to help pay for supplies, uniforms and tuition. Our goal always is to keep the kids in the classroom and remove the money barrier. All that we accomplish is made possible by you, our supporters.

The first few days of school in Haiti a lot of students stay home typically. We have started calling parents to inform them to return to Les Sophos. The trauma at the end of the last school year left doubts in the minds of parents if the school would reopen. Thanks to our supporters, the school can continue to provide quality education. The uniform color for Les Sophos is changing this year. It will be revealed in future updates

This year the 9th year fundamental exams were administered July 19-21 to grade 9 students across Haiti. Students cannot get promoted to the 10th grade if they do not pass the exams, regardless of performance during the school year. In Haiti, grade 10 is the first year of high school, which goes up to grade 13. Our school College Les Sophos sent 19 students to take the national exam, and 16 of them passed. We are proud of all 19 students! They’ve had to endure a lot this year.

We thank you, the dear donors for your support. Without your crucial donations, the previous year wouldn’t be possible for our students. Honestly, we didn’t expect this great success from our precious students given the circumstances. Besides, the social unrest and extreme economic hardship, their school was vandalized, and they were terrorized.

We’re grateful for our supporters, we’re proud of our students, and we are hopeful for a successful new school year. Congratulations to our scholars!

Dear supporters,         

I was in Haiti on July 07, 2021 when the country learned in the early morning hours of that Wednesday that the President of the country was assassinated. This was shocking to many people inside and outside the country. Personally, having taken 10 trips to Haiti since 2018, I can attest to the growing insecurity, hunger and instability. Haiti is a complicated place with many challenges. Yet, I’m not deterred; I believe and know the country can improve because it used to be better in many ways.

The children and their future keep me going. We must continue the work to provide for the children and to create opportunities for the people of Haiti.

We are working with our partner school, College Les Sophos d’ Haïti, formerly located in Delmas 33, to find a new location. Please support our campaign:

Let's keep the children smiling!
