Help for self-help through education - Elementary school in Dos-Lacour

We are convinced that people in need primarily require one thing:
Tools which enable them to help themselves.

In Haiti there are still a lot of children who can't go to school. Like in Dos-Lacour,a poor village in the centre of Haiti, situated in the mountains near the lake Lac de Peligre. There the children have no opportunity to go to school because there is no school. We want to change that.

In an elementary school the fundamental interrelations between human and nature are taught. Without a proper understanding of these interrelations , it is difficult to step back from the daily fight for survival.
An elementary school is also an effective way to reach the whole family, which strengthens the community. This is especially important, because most problems (e.g. water management) can only be solved together.

There are more than 50 children in Dos-Lacour and its surrounding area who want to go to school, but cannot. With your help we can change that.

The construction plan is already made and the helpers in Haiti are ready to go. All we still need are the funds for the building materials, some school materials and then the salary for three teachers, which are already teaching since October without payment . They entirely depend on the support from the village people, which themselves struggle for survival.

We have friends on-site: The self-help group COOPLAC (Coopération des Pécheurs autour de lac). COOPLAC is a group of local men who want to face the problems of the region. Among their members are representatives of the district as well as friends and relatives of Fritznel Römer, who vouches for them. Among other things did they distribute relief goods in the region after the earthquake. They were thereby supported by self-help organizations in Cange.

Of course we will also be supported by the villagers of Dos-Lacour.

Help us with a little donation or become a member of our registered association. A little contribution from you here can have a great impact on the life of the children in Haiti.

The members of the executive committee of our association "Bildung für Haiti e.V" ("Education for Haiti") personally guarantee that all earnings will be exclusively used for the benefit of the children in Dos-Lacour.
Our association solely and directly pursues charitable and benevolent purposes.The funds of the association may only be used for statutory purposes. The association gets its funds from donations and membership fees.

We are looking forward to hearing from you:
