School Begins Again!

The Latest

After a longer than expected summer recess, schools have resumed in Haiti. The boy’s campus is again bustling with activity as 222 day students arrive on campus to join with the resident students to begin their school day. From mathematics to Spanish and French, our eager students are learning in a safe environment with caring teachers and staff because of your continued support. Our high school students attend high school off campus at either St. Marten, St. Andrew or the Lycee.

The annual start-up costs for our students include funding for new uniforms and all the necessary undergarments/uniform shoes, new textbooks, and classroom supplies for our teachers. We thankfully had items leftover from our 2020 container shipment to augment the supply costs. However, new textbooks and uniforms are a necessity every year. Funding for the 2021 school start-up fees are $4,290.

Every day, our campus staff on both the boy’s campus and the girl’s campus are hard at work to provide overall care for our residents. From clean uniforms to nutritious meals – the children of Maison Fortuné Orphanage are well cared for – so they can learn and grow in a safe environment. Our eager-to-learn students are grateful for your continued support!

In honor of Jean Louis’ birthday next week, we are asking for donations to match his age and cover our school start-up expenses. Jean Louis will be turning 55! We need 78 supporters to help us reach this goal…so please consider a gift of $55 today to honor Jean Louis’ birthday AND to impact our students at Maison Fortuné Orphanage!

Thank you for your continued support! With your help, the children of Maison Fortune Orphanage will become future leaders of Haiti. Please make your gift today!
