In a country such as Haiti, schools play a fundamental role: safe places where children can find a “shelter” from the dangers of rampant crime and benefit from education that represents a potential source of redemption for them and the community itself. Educating children and their families about the concept of school as a chance for redemption for themselves and the community means raising their awareness on the fact that change must pass through them and it is for their benefit.
The 5 ABF schools in Haiti are located in the poorest and more remote communities in the countries. The schools of St. Augustin, St. Philomene, Notre Dame du Rosaire, St. Raphael and Manitane include equipped classrooms, management offices, a library, a computer lab, a kitchen, canteen, bathrooms and a playground. Some of the schools have electricity powered by a solar panel system, solar-powered street lights, water towers that also serve the community, and a water purification and distribution system.

COVID-19 EMERGENCY: STUDYING SAFELY
ABF has worked and continues to work every day so that 2,850 students may continue to go to school safely and access education, even when they cannot physically attend school.
The project includes the costs of providing face masks to students, teachers and service staff, as well as sanitation materials and the implementation of cell phone systems to communicate with the communities and their contact persons.
If you wish, you can allocate any funds collected during your fundraiser to a specific school.
