The School

Haiti Sustainable Education includes two very important aspects of educating the children of Grand-Bois, a model of education curriculum and the buildings and architecture in which that takes place.

The primary beneficiaries will be the children of Grand-Bois, however students from other communities will be allowed to apply. A minimum of 80 percent of the children will be from the Grand- Bois area. The school will be scholarship based and funded by donations, foundation and government grants, and income generated from renting the facilities during the summer months.
