In May 2010, Live Different started the school project in Calvaire by flattening the land that was purchased. Most of the land was made up of stone that had to be broken down by hand. The stone was then used for the retaining wall for the property. While the retaining wall was being built, we had another crew working on building a road to the property for materials to be delivered and future access to the property. When this was completed we also flattened an area that will be used as a play area for the children. True to Haitian building tradition, all of this has been done by hand! Before we started construction on the school, we committed to building it to meet earthquake standards and the ability to have a second story added in the future. The construction of the school has been done with limited tools and resources. For example, the water for the construction was drawn from a well about 500 meters away and carried to the work site.

This school build project is not an easy task but we are pleased and excited to see the progress made! At this time, we have completed 5 classrooms with 200 children attending the school. During your stay, it will be our goal for you to see some of the beautiful places Haiti has to offer including the Citadel and Labadee beach. Join us in building relationships, learning about the Haitian culture, and supporting a project that will impact those who need it most.
