Eventually, Haiti School Project hopes to provide textbooks for all the children at the school in Villard. This is a goal that we hope to achieve once construction is well underway but thanks to these kind folks at We Care Act, Haiti School Project will be able to buy about 30 sets of textbooks in time for the coming school year!
The cost of buying textbooks is far out of the reach of many Haiti parents. On top of paying school fees and buying uniforms for their children, many families in Haiti cannot buy books for their children.
Currently, none of the students have textbooks to use in class or at home. This makes it difficult for students to learn at their own pace. It also means that a lot of class time is spent with the teachers writing things on the board for the students to then copy down. The textbooks should improve the quality of education of the students and increase their success on the final exams which they must pass in order to be able to go on to the next grade level. In this way, it may even increase retention rates and the success rate of students.
We are proud that we are able to take this step towards improving the quality of education for students in Villard and we are thankful to Sharon, Grace and Eric Li at We Care Act who made this possible!
Thank you to all those who contributed and helped make this fundraising campaign a success!
Thanks for your help.
Last weekend, when the temps were in the 90’s in NYC, my daughter
decided that it would be a good day for a lemonade stand. We’ve done
this before, and each time we pick a charity to share the profits,

My daughter, Eliza, chose to share her profits this year
with “a school in Haiti.” The back story is that Eliza’s school last
year joined with All Hands Volunteers to help out a school in Leogane,
Haiti. While she did not go (she was 10), she was drawn to the cause
as I have made 2 visits to Haiti as a volunteer doctor since the
earthquake, with Project Medishare.
I found you by searching something like schools in Haiti and
donations. I read your story and it resonated with me as a goal of
Project Medishare is to empower Haitian physicians with the goal of
establishing quality and sustainable health care.
