Catching up with Mission of Hope in Grand Goave, Haiti

Renée Edme shares more news with us this week!

Adam Holt and a small team from Unleash Kids! paid us a visit this week.


We have started up two more laptop classes for our primary students in Thozin. Cledson Jean and Davidson Edmond are leading these classes, thanks to some training from Sora Edwards-Thro. Adam Holt, who first launched the program for us, was here this week with a small team. I’d love to tell you exactly what they did, but… well… I’m not such a tech wiz. It had something to do with updating the XOs and doing something to the server. Adam spent some time with the kids and our new trainers, as well.


Tiling has started in the new school building! I am amazed by the difference since my visit in September. WOW!

Feb2-2014HaitiBlog2Thanks to donations from our friends at Mission USA and Firebrand Technologies, we were able to begin tiling some of the floors at the school. The kitchen, bathrooms, downstairs hallway and two classrooms are covered. The floors are looking incredible!  What a difference some tile makes!  We have funding for two classrooms, but still need to raise funds for 6 more (along with the adjacent gallery areas) and the administrative offices. Would your office or church group like to help us finish the floors? Please consider holding a fundraiser to tile a classroom ($800) or the administrative suite ($1600). We are getting close to the end of this first phase of construction. Please help us to finish strong. Thank you! (
