Donate. 100% of contributions for the project reach the school in Haiti. How is that possible? Expenses--such as this website--are paid for by designated donations for that purpose. MPP, our Haitian partner, is paid 5% for project management.
Travel with Us. Our visits to the EcoVillages and the school are profound experiences that are often described as “life changing.” Haiti is a place of contrasts – joyful people who live in deep poverty. A visit to the EcoVillage School is a hopeful experience, but it raises many questions for travelers who live in modern societies. Regardless of religious practice or inclinations, it becomes a spiritual experience that grows our understanding.
Tell your friends. We need more contributors. We are building bridges to connect ideas, energies and always welcome donors who make any contributions.
Add your voice as a Supporter. Donors may provide a snapshot and brief testimonial about why they support the school and why it matters to them.
Choose something specific to fund. The school has many needs. It can be satisfying to know what your contribution is doing. Here are some options.
- $23,000 for a classroom. We will build 4 more classrooms at a cost of $23,000 each. They are made of concrete block and will educate children for generations.
- $1100 for furnishings. The new classrooms need to be furnished. Benches and desks for children cost $1100 for each classroom. Additional furniture, including chalkboard, teacher’s desk, supply cabinet – costs another $1100.
- $390 for food. Provide lunch for all 160 kids in school for one week. Parents volunteer in the school garden to put fresh vegetables on the lunch table. Some staples don't grow in the garden -- oil, rice, maize – and have to be purchased.
- $141 for a teacher. Based on 160 students, $141 covers teacher's salary per child for a full year.
- $120 for female goat. Each family is raising a goat that belongs to the school as a way of paying for the operation of the school.
- $55 for learning resources. A month's worth of books, paper, chalk -- all the supplies teachers need to aid learning -- for one classroom. $450 provides supplies for one class for the whole year.
