KPP news update…

Konbit Pou Potapiman inc (KPP) continues to brighten the day for families struggling to survive after the passage of hurricane Matthew. Indeed, on Thursday February 23rd, 2017, the representatives of KPP distributed corn and bean seeds to the residents of the villages of Pinette and Saradas in the commune of Port-a-Piment. These villages have some similarities as they both cover areas with low vegetation and extreme poverty. A total of 78 families received the seeds for planting using the advice of an agricultural expert.

Meanwhile, In the village of Jabouin, seedlings of green pepper and tomato were distributed to the farmers. More fields are being worked on and getting ready for planting . And in all of these areas, the concept of KONBIT is encouraged and practiced.

Distribution of school supplies

Port-a-Piment continues to struggle to regain its momentum after the devastating hurricane of October 4th 2016.  The schools of the commune of Port-a-Piment are functioning under extreme stress to perform. The deprivation of basic materials and schools supplies is astonishing. It’s hard to imagine doing schoolwork without ordinary supplies like paper and pencils, blackboards, chairs,student desks etc…Yet many students in remote and economically depressed villages of the commune struggle against such odds. As the director of the Ecole Nationale de Potus told us:” Mr. Jean the kids are coming to school empty handed,  they have nothing to write, teachers have no blackboards..“.

To help these schools cope with their hardships, blackboards, student desks, chairs, desks were ordered and notebooks, pens and pencils for each student were purchased and delivered last month to the following schools by representatives of KPP

Schools                                                 # Students

Ecole Nationale de Dolian                           159

Ecole Nationale de Guillaume                     212

Ecole Nationale de Potus,                           170

Ecole Nationale de Cavalier                        150

In addition to these schools, the 631 students of the Ecole Fondamentale d’Application de Port-a-Piment (EFA) received notebooks, pens and pencils. The distribution was coordinated by the KPP representative Mrs. Paule Edeline Orcel, assisted by KPP members Joceline Julien and Emiel Jacob with the full cooperation of the schools directors.
