Kicking off A new partnership with the community of St. Louis d'Ayiti,
People at Christ Church of Hamilton and Wenham, Massachusetts, are eager to meet their Light and Peace Mission counterparts in St. Louis d’Ayiti (SLA) at the end of March. While planning for that first visit and assembling gift bags for the school children, they are already planning their first annual NORTH SHORE PACKATHON FOR HAITI, to provide a full lunch program for over 100 students there.
Chapottin’s school gets a second story!
We received this photo mid-December and by now, the school probably has its roof. The upstairs classrooms will be larger and have better light than those downstairs. We look for to seeing the progress ourselves when we visit in April. Also new since our last visit are 4 boys and girls rooms, a first for the school.
a new school building for Trois Mares...
will mirror this one. Built with gifts in memory of our good friend, Nancy Hulbrock, it will have 6 classrooms and bring the rest of the children into dedicated classrooms where they can better focus and learn. Volunteers use picks and shovels to level the hillside for play space between the two buildings.
Future Forward for Haiti works through partnerships between American and Haitian churches, all of which reach out to their own communities. The Haitian churches work hard to provide schools for local children, so our work is primarily to support education.
IT'S ALWAYS UP TO YOU.
