Latrines for Leogane
Thanks to so many donors and time put in by our fall and winter mission teams, we have made a lot of progress on our new Leogane elementary school. The permanent foundation for all of the classrooms is in. The school director’s office has been built in cement and secured with the metal door and windows. The new school kitchen is complete with Haitian style cook tops to make the food for the elementary school and high school. The temporary classrooms have all been built in wood and tin, which will last 5-7 years in this condition (if needed).
Our next major piece to work on at this school is toilets. This latrine building will contain five Haitian style toilets. Currently there are no toilet facilities at this location, which makes it very difficult for the children, teachers, and community surrounding the school.
The cost of building these latrines will be $12,500. We have a team traveling to Haiti this month and would love to have the money to get this building underway while our team is there. Our goal would be to have the funding to finish these latrines by the end of the month.
UPDATE: As of April 10th we have about half of the funding needed for this project! Taran will be meeting with one of our Haitian crews tomorrow to start digging.
For those able to give to help us bring in the remaining $6,000 or so, please visit our donation page for this project by - CLICKING HERE -
