Water Well for Limbe Academy

We are raising funds to help build a water well for the children of Limbe Academy in Haiti.   

Susi Tschupp (my mom) started this cause in 2010 after the earthquake that devastated Haiti.  She met Baptist minister, Pierre Erasmin, who was running a school for orphans in a town called Haute Limbe, located in northern Haiti.  
Susi found inspiration after reading the book "Three Cups of Tea" by Greg Mortenson who built schools for girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan.  She realized that a project starts with the idea of one person and grows from there.

At first she collected food, clothing and school supplies and enlisted a pilot friend who  flew from Florida and delivered the goods directly to the school.   

When she visited the school in 2012 she realized the situation was worse than expected...

Once she returned the fundraising began to build a permanent  school structure.   Susi and her friends were able to raise money and build a simple school with solid walls, floors, a tin roof, benches, desks and blackboards.

This was a great accomplishment which helped the community and empowered the children.

During her a visits she observed children digging for water in a dried out river bed.  They had plastic buckets and collected dirty water from the bottom of a hole they had dug.  And so she found her next project...


Please help us raise money to build a water well for the school and community.  If we raise enough money we also hope to build a working toilet for the school and a small farm with chickens, goats and rabbits.

Thank you so much...every little bit helps.
