Current School in Morin with 250 Children – Dream Project 2020 – Build a School
Update March 2021 - First rooms have been built!
MAY 2021 - UPDATES: Local teams of volunteers rebuilt the road to enable large trucks to deliver sand, cement and other building materials for the new school. Now the first room of a permanent structure is complete. Three additional rooms will make an adequate space for six grades.
Here is an opportunity to share prayers, expertise and money.
FIRST ROOMS IN THE SCHOOL ARE COMPLETE!
Last December the students in Morin went to school in a primitive structure; today they have three rooms of the new concrete school. Local masons and carpenters were hired to do the skilled work, while parents and other community members also volunteered their services. The need remains to add three more rooms to accommodate the six grade levels. (And they need an outhouse!)
Haiti has a 61% illiteracy rate overall. In the mountains it is much greater.. maybe 90% of adults living in the mountains cannot read a simple sentence or even write their name.
Education is a means to learning and growing.
Long-term we will provide opportunities for children and adults. Adults need trades and life skills to help themselves and their families. Dignity, caring and sharing are the strategies! We want the Haitians to have ownership over their destiny and have HOPE!
The current fund raising campaign includes efforts to build a three stall latrine.
Additional money is needed to complete the school with three more rooms to accommodate the six grades.
