This first day of work began at the Cazeau Christian Elementary School & Orphanage, located near the Port-au-Prince Airport. A group from Unleash Kids!, comprised of about five people, walked from the guest house to the site for their first walk-about. Here you see some street scenes as they approach the school where they will be working.
And then the tour began, greeting the staff, visiting the classrooms and of course the kids. The techies also looked at options for Internet-in-a-Box and School Server integration.The teaching areas are separated by temporary walls.A large useful area, likely for church services mainly.The outdoor walled courtyard, a play area. A place to store things: extra mattresses and materialsSora has taught herself Creole and so gets to socialize more intimately with the children. Time to check out the battery backup.Climbing onto the roof for a better view!And always more visiting with the children.Meal time! Time for the girls to shampoo and fix their hair
Later, the sun sets over the capitol. The team met up with their friends Junior and Benaja and headed to a restaurant at the top-of-the-hill overlooking Port-au-Prince, where they had the most delicious cappuccinos ever. Back at “home base,” they were busy far into the night…trying to get the XO laptops up and ready for the kids to use next week.And even later, the last one awake prepares for Day 2.*****
