Haiti in our Hands are committed to the rebuilding of all the schools in the community of Chauffard. We see this as one of the major challenges our organisation faces and a lot of our attention over the coming years will be devoted to this project.
In summer of 2014 the construction of the main school of Chauffard was completed by Caritas. This is an incredibly impressive building considering the terrain and location of Chauffard. The people of Chauffard are truly grateful.
Caritas and Haiti in our Hands – May 2012
In May of 2012 as part of a trip to Chauffard, Haiti in our Hands met with Caritas Swiss, a large global charitable organisation with an office in Port-au-Prince, who were committed to rebuilding the school of Chauffard. They had impressive draft plans with significant funding. In this meeting they outlined their plans and reasons for Chauffard. Haiti in our Hands stressed the commitment we have to the community of Chauffard and the support we’d provide post construction in covering the operational costs.
It all seemed a perfect set up and in summer of 2014 a wonderful school was opened in Chauffard. See photos below.
