Monday Morning, March 18, 2013
East of Croix-des-Bouquets there is a school on a hill which was visited by volunteers on Monday, March 18th. This is College Frere Dumay, created by Mme Wongglère. There are 185 children who come from nearby on foot. Volunteers and staff visited the site and familiarized themselves with the students and the surroundings.
On Tuesday through Friday afternoons, from 1-5pm, 18 bright kids from Pastor Silar’s orphanage (ORAEDH) and 2 from David’s Home (where 20 children reside 1 mile to the SouthEast of ORAEDH) will participate in guided exploration with the XO laptop. While there (at College Frere Dumay) the Child In Hand organization offered this school $500 to try to attach it to Haiti’s electrical grid.
Both Junior and Elisabeth charmed the kids!
Child in Hand has six partners in the Port-au-Prince area.
Three of these are both orphanages and schools:
1. ORAEDH, with 66 children nights and 150-160 additional students mornings.
2. Foyer Evangelique, with about 40 children.
3. Village Solidarité, with 68 total children mornings and about 21 overnight.
David’s Home is strictly an orphanage and cares for 20 children.
L’Arbrisseau just N of Croix-des-Bouquets is strictly a school serving 300+ kids and Frere Dumay College on the hill just east of Croix-des-Bouquet is also a school only, with 185 kids.
