Our Current Projects:
Shed A Light on Haiti
Shed a Light on Haiti is a Haiti School Project program providing lighting and phone charging to Haitian families in areas that have no access to electricity. The program provides each family with a solar battery light kit which comes with a solar panel, battery and two lights. The battery which is charged by the solar panel also has a USB port to charge phones which is a big plus to Haitians. A typical Haitian family may spend as much as 400 HTG per month on candles and kerosene and another 100 HTG a month to charge phones which is about 10 USD, so at 4 USD a month they are getting clean lighting and phone charging for a considerable savings.
Lekol Mixte Timoun Toilets
Haiti School Project, HSP, is building new toilets for a small school, Mixte Timoun in Waf Jeremie in Partnership with Aid Still Required, ASR. ASR while conducting seminars at the school realized the need for toilets. After numerous meetings with the school director and Aid Still Required a final design and budget was accepted by all and toilet construction began November 16th, 2015. The toilets will have 4 stalls and one urinal with construction expected to be completed by this Christmas.
Terre Froide Community School
Haiti School Project was contacted by Global Potential, GP, and Haiti: Hands On, H:HO, to assist in building a school in Terre Froide, Haiti. Terre Froide is a small farming community in the Southeast part of Haiti next to the Dominican border. It is an extremely poor area with limited access to schools.

Completed Projects Projects
Villard School Toilets
As part of our mission to help sustain the Foyer Divin School in Villard, Haiti, and to create opportunities that benefit the surrounding community, Haiti School Project completed the toilets in the fall of 2014 in time for the school year. The toilets have created a more hygienic environment for the students. This effort has come about as a result of the need we witnessed firsthand as well as an appeal from the school’s Director.
Construction of the School
Our original efforts in Haiti focused on completing the construction of the Institute Mixte Foyer Divin de Villard (“Villard School”) which is located in Villard, near Saint-Marc, in the L’Artibonite region of Haiti, by the mid 2013 and provide for the school’s future vitality and quality of education.
After two and a half years of hard work and dedication, the Haiti School Project delivered on its goal to complete the school building in Villard, Haiti by the mid-2013 timeframe. We are already seeing the positive socio-economic impact that the school is having within the community and on its children but we’re not done yet! Our mission is to support a sustained investment in education that will promote economic development and improve the quality of life in Haiti and as such, our energy is now focused on that longer term effort.
Haiti School Project has organized teacher training workshops twice already in Villard, once in August 2012 and again in August 2013. We hope to repeat their success in the near future. Read more about our Teacher Trainings.
