OPEN UP THE WORLD TO STUDENTS ON LA GONÂVE

Computer literacy is now required curriculum by Haiti’s Ministry of Education in middle and high schools. 

A computer lab enlarges the classroom learning space and exposes students to academic resources from around the world. Computer skills promote language proficiencies and enable students to engage in stimulating dialogue with students from other nations, creating a global learning community. Teachers receive increased access to valuable information for student learning and to online teacher training opportunities 

EVACE International has built a computer lab in a 20′ shipping container as a way to provide computer access in a dust-free, temperature controlled and secure environment in remote communities.

To support an ideal temperature, the container has been refitted with specialized insulation and an air conditioner unit mounted on the back wall. Roofing provides an additional means to reduce heat on the container. The container is bolted to a concrete platform that protects it further from dust, water, and natural disasters. The open end of the container has steel and glass doors to provide light and security. Training modules on basic computer skills accompany the lab.

EVACE has donated a prefabricated lab to La Gonâve Haiti Partners for use on the Haitian island of Gonâve at St. Francis Campus in Anse-a-Galets. Funds are still needed for refurbished tablets, chairs, internet booster and generator, as well as shipping costs.

Judette's dream in her own words..."When I become a doctor I would like to specialize in pediatrics and/or surgery, and then return home to help people in my neighborhood of Lotoré and those in need, because I do not want other children to live the way that I lived.Our house was old and the walls were crumbling. But this was the only home we had, so we stayed as if it were perfect. In spite of everything, we lived with a shared faith in God and the sense that love reigned."Your gift to the 2020 Annual Fund will support the youth of la Gonâve in building a better future for their families and their communities.

INDEPENDENCE DAY 2021

The first of January is a special holiday observed by Haitians around the world. The date symbolizes the birth of a new nation in 1804, following the revolt by the Haitian people against the country’s French colonizers and plantation owners. History tells us that on Sunday, January 1, 1804, Haitians gathered in the Place d’Armes,

Judette’s Story

When Judette Desbouquets was six years old, she received her first and only present. Her good grades put her first in her class, and the faculty presented her with a toy first aid kit. Rather than being thrilled with the gift, Judette remembers, “The other two students who were recognized received dolls, and I was

I am not a medical professional, so I planned to do educational/recreational outreach at St. Croix, a school near the clinic. As sometimes happens in Haiti, plans change. When
