It's working! Children, adults and whole communities are moving forward with a little help from our friends!
First ten graduate in Trois Mares!
Our travel team was overjoyed to share the celebration at the Light and Peace School in Trois Mares! These determined students overcame many challenges and passed their promotion tests. They learned French. Some missed school to help at home. Most of their parents did not read. Every one of them plans for secondary school in September.
Chapottin's Cistern is finished!
This huge concrete box is Chapottin's new 22,680 gallon cistern! Thanks to everyone who contributed to Teaneck Packathons for Haiti 2014 and 2015, everyone in Chapttin will have access to the clean water stored here.
Fred "surveys" land for 5th and 6th grade classrooms, our next project.
Teaneck Packathon for Haiti volunteers packed 125,000 school lunches for students at the Light and Peace schools in both Trois Mares and Chapottin, Haiti.
It's always a big family reunion
when our Future Forward for Haiti team visits the Light and Peace Missions. We trade stories, ask after everyone's health, learn how school is going, LISTEN, play games and sing songs, walk together, eat, laugh, cry, figure out how to help each other, check on our investments, and look forward to doing it all again next year.
Join the family: become a monthly sponsor, volunteer at our November packathon, contribute toward new classrooms for Trois Mares, provide a set of textbooks, assemble gift bags for the kids we visit, request our e-mailings, or who knows? maybe even join our travel team some day.
