Building Projects and Opportunities

In 2021 during our annual meetings, we identified 2 of our schools as desperately needing repairs and an expansion. We prayed about the projects and shared our vision with our supporters. We received a positive response from WorldShare UK (www.worldshare.org.uk) and our planning began. 

With the desire of having our partners in Haiti control the building projects we were able to support the schools with a greater portion of their operating expenses allowing them to fund the school expansions and renovations with their own funds.

Both school building projects are on schedule to finish for the beginning of the 2022 school year.

Pastor Cenet's Church and School

The school in the mountainous community of Bois-Lette will receive an almost complete rebuild. Their walls were built many years ago from rocks and crumbling mortar. Pastor Cenet, a pastor and school director, has been able to commence rebuilding the church and school walls using handmade concrete blocks. 

This school will need new desks and benches to finish off the renovations.

School Expansion in Anse-à-Galets

Monal Irame will be adding a 2nd storey to JFFU (Jardin Fleuri des Frères Unis) in the main city. We are so excited they will be able to offer more classrooms and grades to the school.

Update: the school building project is on schedule to be completed at the beginning of the school year. Benches, desks, and new chalk boards are currently being built. The teachers are so excited.

Secure Depot and Office Space

Our project manager, Emerson Dalmas, has space in front of his house where he would like to rebuild a safe, sturdy structure that will serve as a storage depot as well as an office. This space will enable him to have a secure place to safely store the perishable food we purchase for the community food programs as well as an office area for PiFò Haiti. Currently Emerson has 10 people living in his home so he needs some extra space as he manages all of PiFò Haiti's in-country affairs.

Update: Emerson will begin with demolishing the current structure and rebuilding in October 2022.

Kitchen and Food Depot at School

We are so grateful that through a partnership Pastor Paul has with World Vision he is able to receive rice, corn, beans and oil each month to use for the school food program. PiFò Haiti supplements the program with funding for spices, charcoal, oil and staff to cook and serve the food. 

The school desperately needs a covered building/kitchen for the meals to be made as well as a dedicated depot to store the food.

The kitchen and depot will also be used for church conferences throughout the year.

PROJECT CURRENTLY ON HOLD
