Building Bridges - Transforming Lives
In 2016, St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church began to support a school in Haiti by providing funding for teachers, supplies and food for the children. The current school is a make-shift tent where most children sit on the ground or the tiny benches and struggle to read the writings on the wooden boards.
St. Bart's plans to build a K-5 school for approximately 400 students who will walk up to 90 minutes each way to school. The school will be the first building in the community and will initially serve as a school, church and hurricane shelter for the community.
- St. Bart's has committed to building a school in Haiti.
- Please join us in supporting 400 Haitian students.
- Our initial funding goal is $65,000.
- Ongoing annual support is $14,000 per year.
