Schools in Haiti
About the project
Our first project was a new school in Haiti for children under 15 years old. In addition to the long-lasting impact of the catastrophic earthquake in 2010, existing schools are severely lacking in basic supplies of educational tools like stationary, mathematical equipment, and classroom equipment.
The first step to understand the scope of the project was to learn what shaped a child's learning experience in Haiti and to find out how we could make improvements.
Support from local communities
Location, scale, and accessibility was absolutely crucial to this project. We wanted to make the biggest but most realistic impact to the educational landscape in Haiti.
Contextualizing the needs of Haitian schoolchildren, their parents, and their educators helped us to construct a well-equipped, bright, and accessible place of learning.
