Project Background

For the past several years, we have been adding additional classes at the Senior Secondary level to accommodate our students who are advancing. In 2015, we built additional classroom space to accommodate grade 11 or Secondaire 2 as it is known in Haiti. In 2016, we built an additional classroom for our grade 12 students, also known as Rheto in Haiti. In 2017, in order to maintain our high standing and support of the Haitian Ministry of Education, we need to build another classroom to support the final year of secondary education in Haiti, grade 13 or Philo. We are excited about the day when we can graduate our first class of students from our own institution! As the Secondary Classroom project nears completion, we need to prepare for furnishing the classroom.

This project is estimated to cost $3,000. Here is the breakdown of the budget:

Budget Breakdown

Paint $2,000
Desk & Chalkboard Construction $1,000
