As the HEART in Haiti School continues to grow, it wants to expand its reach to include high school (grades 7 through 12).  The estimate for adding a 7th grade class for 20 students is $11,000.  Our concern is for those students now in 6th grade and what education experience awaits them if HEART cannot continue to provide their education.

student-booksHEART strives to provide the best educational experience and opportunities for our students, their teachers and staff. We make every effort to partner with parents and community members to ensure we are building community and fostering self-sustainability. One of the partnerships we’ve made with parents is with the purchase of student books. Since the school’s opening, we’ve sent the list of necessary books for families to purchase before school opens. In the last year, HEART staff has noticed an increase in serious financial difficulties that parents face. HEART would like to begin a book borrowing program. The program would be that sponsors would purchase a set of books for a student to borrow, take care of for the year, and then pass on to another student once the school year is over. The estimate for this program is $2,200 US total, or about $20 per student.

HEART strives to provide the best educational experience and opportunities for our students and their teachers and staff, and an important component of educational experience is the classroom environment.  Since the beginning of the school’s opening in 2010, our goal has been to provide preschool and kindergarten with adequate round tables, and each elementary grade classroom with desk and chair sets for each student.  In this way, students have their own personal learning space and can focus and organize their belongings better than they would at benches or on the floor.  As we increase our number of grades, we will be needing to accommodate more classes of students.  In 2016, we anticipate needing to acquire 12 student desks and chairs.  The estimate for this project is $3,000 US, or $250 per desk/ chair set.

For the security, privacy and safety of our school grounds, buildings, staff, and students, a wall or fence and a front gate around the HEART School property is vital.  HEART is quite grateful to a generous donor who has funded 2 parts of the wall, but we still need to construct the rest of the wall The projected cost of an 8 foot wall around the rest of the property is approximately $20,000. Specifics of cost of supplies and labor can be provided upon request.  Please contact our director [schadrac845@yahoo.com]

The medical fund is in place to ensure that all students in need of medical attention will be able to receive it.  In the past our staff have brought students to get treated for issues such as pink eye, malaria, stomach aches, and skin rashes so they can return to school.  The yearly estimate for this fund is $500 but additional donations are welcome.
