In December of 2017, we launched our Building Project and set out to purchase new land and build a new structure for the school we support in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, A New Arrival Center School.
In just a few short months, our friends and supporters heard our story and helped raise an incredible $80,000. With that money, we were able to make a down payment on a plot of land and begin building classrooms. During the Summer of 2018, Haitian contractors, students, and parents worked diligently to get the construction of 9 new classrooms, an office, and a kitchen completed before September 2018. A New Arrival Center School has now completed its first full school year in their new classrooms.
We are now at the point where the rest of the land payment is due. We are calling on dedicated sponsors and new friends to join us in our goal to raise $42,000 by the end of July, and an additional $40,000 by the end of October 2019 to close out our property purchase. If we are unable to make these payments, there is a real possibility that the future of the school is at risk.
Any donation, big or small, will help us get to our goal. Thank you for partnering with us in this work. 100% of your tax-refundable donation will go toward funding this project.
