We met two little boys on the road next to the land. They currently do not attend school, because they cannot afford school fees. We asked them, "If we built a school here, would you come to attend the school?"
Without hesitation, they answered, "Wi!"
Hope of Haiti will build a school for hundreds of homeless children in a neighborhood destroyed by the earthquake in Meyotte, Haiti. Reader to Reader is working in partnership with Haeinn Woo and OFPDH (Organization of the Proud Patriots for the Development of Haiti) to bring books, resources, tents and funds to the project. The project was established by the Haitian community itself and is managed with strong involvement from the community it serves.
In January 2011 a group of five students visited Meyotte, bringing the first wave of supplies to the town. In the summer of 2011, we want to build the first section of the school. Each brick is only seventy-five cents; every donation, even the smallest, makes a difference. Please consider donating, joining the team and telling everyone about this wonderful effort:
Not only because a little gift can SAVE their lives, not only because they are the POOREST children in Western Hemisphere, not only because they are the FUTURE of Haiti, not only because you will be BLESSED for doing this, but also because you know you MUST.
Please visit our website at http://www.hopeofhaiti.org/ and take a look at Haeinn's story, as well as many more photos of the area and the children this project serves.
