Haiti Progress - Spring 2013

Construction on the Phase One classroom building continues at "College Coeur Immacule de Marie" the all-girls school in Bois Verna, a historic neighborhood of Port au Prince. The design and construction team plans to lead a tour of the building site with the students and teachers who have been very curious about what is going on behind the construction fence. We will show them the massive rebar work going inside the concrete. The foundation is almost completed. This project alone stimulated the recovery of about 25 construction jobs. See below...

The clear bleu waters of Ile A Vache. The small virgin Island on the south peninsula of Haiti, is one of Haiti's most popular tourist sites. While the GOH has drafted of a Preliminary Master Plan to develop a nature-based tourism better known as Eco tourism, we are conducting a participatory community action plan with a grant from WK Kellogg Foundation.  We aim to weave healthy self-reliant communities where children can have better opportunities for success.
