A School for the Children of Port au Prince

The Father Jeri School opened its doors in September 2016 and is offering children in the Ti Plas Kazo community in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, a wonderful opportunity to receive a quality, affordable education. The building is clean, filled with natural light, structurally sound and designed to be an environment for learning. The school provides a challenging academic curriculum along with real world learning outside of the classroom and opportunities for leadership and civic engagement. The physical space and curriculum, in combination with the commitment from teachers, students, and families, is providing a unique educational opportunity for poor Haitian children. The grant from BGR, administered through our partner, the What If? Foundation, is the third in a three-year project. The purposes of the grant are: (1) to ensure that salaries are competitive to help retain a quality teaching and administrative staff; (2) to provide professional development opportunities for teachers and administrators by attending training programs to strengthen their skills; (3) to provide school supplies to ensure that teachers have the materials they need to create a strong learning environment. This includes paper, pens, chalk, and books. Year three of a three-year project
