College Les Sophos d’ Haiti and Institute Mixte Divine have completed the 2021/2022 school year. Thank you for your support through these trying times for the children and their families!
College Les Sophos occupied a temporary location this past school year. We are working to ready a place for the upcoming school year and to eventually have a permanent location. We anticipate a larger student body for Les Sophos this next school, so we need to be prepared. Institute Mixte divine had over 100 students this year as more people have moved into that are of Titayen. The students deserve the best and we are looking for funding to improve the physical building and restart summer camps.
Currently we are working on a tutoring program because the students have missed a lot of days of instruction due to COVID-19 and social unrest in the last three years. We want to build this school to prepare the students for the 21st century. The high school will be STEM focused. The children deserve the best. We will give you updated on these plans as they developed.
We are starting a series that allows us to introduce our students to you and enables them to express their hopes, dreams, and gratitude. This is from the young scholar pictured above:
'My name is Samuel, and I am in the third grade. I live in Delmas, Haiti. When I grow up, I want to be a doctor to help the people and the country. Thank you for helping me get an education'.
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.
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.
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
