THE STORY:

LOVE KNOWS NO BOUNDS & SONJE AYITI wrote -

Last fall, 5 volunteers from Love Knows No Bounds traveled to Haiti to establish a partnership with an inspiring and powerful non-profit organization, Sonje Ayiti. As part of our international Neighbor2Neighbor work, we are working with Sonje Ayiti on a joint project to build a school in the village of Cima.  In fact, it was Sonje Ayiti that inspired the "koud-a-koud," or shoulder-to-shoulder spirit of Neighbor2Neighbor.  We are honored to be working with such a great organization.  Here's a little information about Sonje Ayiti and the importance of this project.

Sonje Ayiti is a group of Haitian and international  humanitarians who collaborate to uplift the Haitian community through education, economic development, and health promotion.  A major project of the organization is building a school in the village of Cima.  

The Cima School, currently consisting of 7 teachers and ~150 students, was originally housed in a UNICEF tent with a tarp dividing the Kindergarten (ages 3-5) and 1st grade (ages 7-12) classes.  The school provides lunch of fortified rice and is often the only meal of the day for these students. The school also provides books and a uniform – which are sown by a group of mothers at the beginning of the year.

The current school building now has 3 classrooms, but the 4th graders currently had nowhere to go this fall and are housed in a tent.  There is also a waiting list of 50+ students.

The children of the Cima community deserve the chance to go to school in an environment where they have the resources to learn and thrive.  A portion of the funds we raise in the Holiday Challenge will help build a modern school building to make this vision a reality.  If we raise $50,000, we can join with Sonje Ayiti to finish the school in 2016!

With gratitude,
