Our Partner School in Cite Soleil
September 30, 2009
I’m (John Engle) in Haiti for several days focusing on our partner school in Cite Soleil. It’s so encouraging to be able to come and go into a part of Port au Prince–an extremely poor neighborhood with nearly a half million people–that was too dangerous to visit for several years. It was run by violent gangs. Now, even though it’s poor, it’s safe. Schools are functioning, there’s commercial activity, and police, who had not entered for years, are circulating freely.
Haiti Partners is privileged to be partnering with Cite Soleil Community School where 200 children from desperately poor families receive a quality education along with a nutritious meal every day. We’re currently working on a video that tells the school’s story. It’s an extraordinary story so stay tuned.
