Hand in Hand for Haiti
Hand in Hand for Haiti was founded in response to the 2010 earthquake that rocked Haiti, claiming more than 230,000 lives. After determining that the best way to help people rebuild their lives is through education, the project focused on building a school in Saint-Marc. The school, Lycée Jean-Baptiste Pointe du Sable, will house and run classes for more than 700 students from pre-school through secondary school. Students at the school also receive two nutritious meals every day and learn at the highest academic levels, with bilingual English-French classes taught by foreign and local teachers.
