IMECT School Morne Tapion
Operating as 100% for Haiti, now combined with GSF, we rebuilt IMECT school near Petit Goave, Haiti, which was destroyed in the January 2010 earthquake. Funding from the Virgin Islands has managed to keep it running ever since, educating and feeding 270 children, through art sales and private donations, in a plywood temporary building we built for only $7,500. In 2013 we finally received construction funds that had been held up for 3 years! With US$10,000, we built the foundations and walls of three classrooms and a kitchen. Private donations finished the building. The kitchen is also more hygienic, feeds more people, and enables the parents to sell local produce, starting a small microloan program that benefits the community and keeps kids in school. We feed all the children their main meal every day. In 2014 Terre de Hommes, based in Switzerland, built new toilets and showers and a much larger water cistern.
The plywood portion of the school is now 8 years old and the foundation is collapsing and badly needs replacement… please help us count on your continued support.
