A group will be departing Canada at the end of April to re-build a school on Isle de la Gonave, a small island off the coast of Port au Prince, Haiti. The school partially destroyed during the last hurricane is in need of two classrooms, a washroom, a kitchen and an office for the principal. The group will be led by current Rotary Club of Sarnia President, Michael Hurry. The group has hired a local contractor to assess the build, calculate and purchase the required materials for the build and once the group is onsite supervise the volunteers as they rebuild the school. The group will be housed in the community and local Haitian women are hired to provide the meals for the team. This will be a real cultural experience for the participants as they are immersed in the culture of the community.
Each participant is responsible for fund-raising to cover the cost of the build and the related on the ground costs of the project. Each participant is responsible for covering their own flight costs, meals etc. while in transit.
Please help support our efforts as we travel to what is referred to as the poorest place in the poorest country in the western hemisphere. If you would like more information, have questions or wish to inquire about sending school supplies with the group please contact Michael Hurry at email@example.com or text to 5193848815.
