The students never miss a day in spite of the fact that their classroom has no walls, a dirt floor, and a leaky roof. They sit on planks raised on rocks instead of benches and rest their books on their knees to write. It is difficult to hold class when it rains or if it’s windy. This school is in dire need of a proper room to hold classes and alleviate their difficult condition. From Here to Haiti hopes to travel in August 2014 to do the work with the community of Ricon. Please help us raise the necessary funds for the classroom.
From Here to Haiti is a 501(c)(3) corporation doing repair work in Haiti. Since 2010, through that repair work and with an all-volunteer staff, we provided temporary employment for over 200 Haitians; improved the lives of over 2000 children and positively impacted countless villagers by promoting self-sufficiency and helping them provide for their families.
PLAN: The estimate for the class is $10,000 and we raised $2,000 so far. We hope to raise the remainder $8,000 by May 31, 2014. If we are successful, we will purchase materials for the cement slab in June, finish slab and posts in July, and travel with a team of about six to work with as many from the community to do the work in August.
Please help make this a reality. Donate $10 or more toward this worthwhile cause. We have to much to be grateful for and many children in Haiti have so little. A classroom would make such a big difference for the children of Ricon. Please help and donate today.
