March 25 – Voila Renovation

 During the last few weeks, Voila, one of our biggest partners has helped us realize a number of new projects in the school and village. The basketball court was renovated and even has crowd stands. The school containers were painted, and new soccer goals were built.

Our Container holds school material and... the food!
 Today was the first inter-school soccer competition vs. a school team of a near by village. The entire event was organized by Billy our school sports teacher and many people from the village came to support the local team.

March 17 - Art Workshop

Children in an Art Class

We used a space between two containers, a little material and a lot of good will to build an art workshop for the school. This new space will provide an out-of-class space for the kids of the school to have art lessons. We’re still not done with the wall murals, but today – our Surages class (overaged kids) had their first lesson in our new space.

March 4 – Carnival


Carnival is the biggest holiday of the year in Haiti. Last year it was cancelled because of the devastating earthquake, but this year everybody is excited about it again.. Each class selected a theme and created their own masks. The school staff with student volunteers decorated the school and today we had a big carnival party with parade, games and performances.
