Building for the Future in Grand Bois
Emmanuel Christian School of Grand Bois is an exciting place to be on a school day! Students flood the school grounds with energy, joy and laughter. The school sits at the highest elevation of all our schools so most students and teachers have a long, uphill walk to get to school each day. Students and teachers alike enjoy classroom visits from RoRo and teams when they can come. The entire school gathers outside at the end of the day for prayer and the lowering of the Haitian flag.
We were blessed to start construction of the new school building in Grand Bois in the Fall of 2019. The students have been waiting a very long time for a new school building in which they can learn and grow in a more comfortable and safe environment. Due to the conditions of the ground around the current building and the conditions of the building itself, each time it rains, the hillside washes into the school and the children are sitting in mud. Much progress has been made on the new school building with the foundation, footers, and rebar for future walls completed in early 2020.
With delays from the pandemic and damages caused by Tropical Storm Laura, we are now more than ever energized and ready to get construction back on track. And we’ve been blessed with an incredible gift! An anonymous donor has provided Haitian Christian Outreach with a $40,000 matching gift to help fund the new school building.
God remains faithful and has provided us with a great opportunity. Will you partner with HCO to make this a reality? If our partners can raise a total of $40,000, the funds will help complete the new Emmanuel Christian School of Grand Bois and bless the nearly 400 students and more than 20 teachers with the resources needed to continue strong in education.
