Education in Fond-des-Blancs, Haiti – A multi-purpose center to serve as a sport center and auditorium for the students and the Fond-des-Blancs community.
I’d like for you to visit us and meet Michlaine. She is one of over 800 students in L’Exode Schools in the Fond-des-Blancs area of Haiti. She started attending L’Exode when she was three. As a toddler her parents brought her on a donkey for the 5 miles distance to the school. From first grade on, she has been walking that distance twice each day, uphill both ways (and that is a true statement). She is sixteen now and the top performing student in her 10th grade class. Her story is not atypical of the other students at L’Exode. She passes by over half a dozen schools on her way to L’Exode. Her parents wanted the very best for their precious daughter and made the sacrifice to face that distance for the past thirteen years.
L’Exode has been committed for over twenty-five years to help break the children of Fond-des-Blancs out of the vicious cycle of poverty and superstition by providing them a quality education in a modern, Christian. And the record speaks for itself: 99% of L’Exode students succeed at the State tests. We have much more to do in the field of education in Fond-des-Blancs; up to providing a university education to the young people, right here in their community. This year we are building a Multi-Purpose center that will double as an auditorium and sport facility. We are half way there in our fundraising. We started construction with what has been pledged so far. We need your help to see the project through.
We are sending this email to a select few. If you could make just a $10.00 contribution it would help toward the goal of $100,000.00 that we need. Please visit our website for more information about what we do. Plan a visit to Fond-des-Blancs, Haiti if you would like to see with you own eyes. I promise you that your donation will contribute to the transformation of a young person’s life.
