Rentrée scolaire 2014!

I am proud to announce that our third school year in a row started last October in our beautiful little school in Haiti, and that 3 women and 6 child-prisoners in Mongolia now have access to weekly lessons in their newly renovated classroom!

Thanks to your donations and the involvement of our dedicated volunteers, we have raised over $20,000 this year! We used 100% of the funds received to:

  1. Install a water tower and connect it to the school well
  2. Build a sanitary block with 5 toilets, 2 for the girls, 2 for the boys and one for the teachers
  3. Build an additional permanent classroom
  4. Collapse one of the perimeter walls and build a solid new wall
  5. Install electrical wiring in the administration building
  6. Refurbish the administration building to hold classrooms so that no class is given in tents anymore
  7. Install swings for the children
  8. Furnish and repair of school furniture
  9. Paint the water tower and the exterior wall of the school
  10. In Mongolia: Renovated an unused prison office into a classroom and library for child-prisoners.

In Haiti, we now hire 6 teachers, one day-care lady, one secretary and a groundskeeper, all full-time.

We also allowed 9 volunteers, mostly from the eastern townships, to take part in international cooperation projects, 7 in Haiti and 2 in Mongolia.

Thank you for your continued support and all our best wishes for the new year!
