Summer in Haiti

Throwback from 2010 after the earthquake but typical of a summer day at the school.

School is out in Haiti! Most children will miss being at school because they enjoy learning and playing with their friends! What they won't miss is a hot meal because during the summer the cooks continue to prepare a huge pot of rice and beans every weekday for any children in the community - typically 400 local kids attend! 

We also continue to pay our teachers and staff so that they can have a steady income year round to provide for their families. 

Another option for our older students is to go to Young Life camp. Young Life has a strong presence in Pele where many of our teachers and staff are leaders for the local club. It costs $63 to send a kid to camp this summer.  Young Life will match all camp sponsorship donations this month, doubling your gift!

Thanks for the outpouring of support for students to attend Young Life camp this summer! To date we have raised scholarships to send 42 kids to camp!  The staff just completed 4 camps with close to 700 kids and leaders. Our own, school director, Chedrick Caneus was there to oversee the experience and many of our school staff and teachers were in attendance as well. 

Thanks for your continued support of our mission! Together we are making a difference in the lives of children, teenagers and families in Haiti!
