Project Report | Dec 9, 2021
Finalizing the land purchase this month

By Chad W. Bissonnette | Executive Director

With two large offline donations made at our annual event and the contributions that came in on Giving Tuesday, we are only $6,222 away from having the funds needed to help our partner in Haiti buy the land for the future leadership center on La Gonave.

With one more push and a final donation from our supporters in 2021, we believe we can finalize the land purchase before the end of the year. In fact, if you and each of the other donors who have supported this project thus far, were to donate just $41 right now, we would hit our goal today and have the plot of land purchased by the 31st.

This would be a tremendous achievement and allow us to focus entirely on getting the design and construction of the Leadership & Development Center started next year. The plot of land measures approximately 1,200 square meters. We expect to build on a little more than half of that, which would mean a facility of about 600-700 square meters (6,500-7,500 square feet). 

To acquire a design for the center, Louino Robillard, Rasin Devlopman's Program Director, and I have begun speaking with several architectural firms in Haiti. We had a meeting with Ateliers Co-Lab yesterday and will be speaking with three others next week. We are asking each firm to submit a proposal for developing a design for the leadership center and will choose the winning firm based on cost, clarity, creativity, and previous experience.  

Stay tuned for more! We promise to keep you updated and please consider making a final 2021 donation today.

Sincerely,

Chad Bissonnette
