“We are the living proof that it is not a question of wealth. The children are very poor, education is free…with a strong curriculum, great teachers, a lot of training and a vision – the vision of the (Hand-in-Hand for Haiti) Foundation – we can do great things.” – Lycée Jean-Baptiste Pointe du Sable Director Michel Deschodt.

HAITI. The Moodie Davitt Report is delighted to bring you an update on progress at the Lycée Jean-Baptiste Pointe du Sable in Haiti.

The Lycée (French for school) is run by charitable institute Hand in Hand for Haiti, a collective response to the humanitarian crisis in Haiti following the catastrophic earthquake of 12 January 2010.

These latest pictures in the gallery below illustrate the remarkable progress that has been made since the school’s opening in late 2011.

To fund a child’s education, and all their meals and support services, costs US$5,000 a year. To sponsor a child please visit http://hihh.org/en/home/.

Such support is vital. In Haiti there is no-one to hand responsibility for the school over to. Hand in Hand for Haiti must continue its work and for that to happen, it requires funding. As Michel Deschodt says, “My goal for our school is that Lycée Jean-Baptiste Pointe du Sable becomes a touchstone for Haiti’s educational system. I share Hand in Hand for Haiti Foundation’s vision that we are educating new generations of leaders and professionals, knowledgeable, caring, principled, open-minded.”
