Reconstruct school for 200 rural students in Haiti

The groundwork for Marion PS has begun

In the past few months we have been making contacts with a couple of foundations and a local cement manufacturer to get some support for our plan to help with the construction of the building for the Marion PS in Grand Anse.

We have received some positive responses from the Digicel Foundation which has asked us to submit a proposal with our scope of works and budget for consideration for one of their grants for Haiti redevelopment. The cement manufacturer has also indicated that they may be willing to donate some building materials to the school.

To date we have contacted 3 local contractors for estimates for the construction of a enclosed structure where the students can hold their classes. As we described before, they are currently studying under what is effectively a tent with no walls or even partitions for the different classes.

Our goal is also to hold a Haiti Fundraiser this fall to raise more money to get our project started. We appreciate your support to date and please share our feedback with your friends and family as our small individual donors still provide the largest support for our schools. Again with our collective efforts we can deliver this building for the children.

Thank you,

Shashamane Haiti Team
