During the week of March 27th 2017, accompanied by Mrs. Paule Edeline Orcel, KPP-Haiti General Secretary, Mrs Carolle Paul, KPP Vice President and Mrs Nicole Jean,KPP member, we visited the schools of Port-a-Piment including the national school in the nearby village of Potus. The scars of the devastation caused by the passage of Hurricane Matthew (crumbled walls, roofless classrooms etc..) were still visible. We were happy to see the kids at school as we encouraged them to maximize their efforts to learn.
At the National school of Figuiers, we took the opportunity to distribute to the students the school supplies graciously donated by the students of West Hills HIgh School of Stanford, Connecticut.The kids were very much happy to receive these supplies.
On behalf of the students of the Ecole Nationale de Figuiers, the school Director and teachers, Konbit Pou Potapiman Inc, wants to thank the students of Westhill High school who donated the supplies such as such as crayons, calculators, scissors, binders, folders, markers, pens, pencils, rulers, paper and glue sticks .
In addition, we would like to offer a special thank you to the Assistant Principal, Mrs. Claudia Obas LeGare of Westhill High School for her leadership and facilitator role in getting these precious gits for the students of Port-a-Piment.
