Staying Cool and Building A Strong Community
How are you spending your hot summer days?!
Every day, the children at Pwoje Espwa are taking a break from the Haitian sun in the new Youth Activity Center!
With the addition of a new secondary school building completed earlier this year, the old secondary school building has been reconditioned to serve as a space for after-school and extracurricular activities like music, art, and religious education.
Staff members lead small groups in various arts and crafts activities, community clean up projects, games, and religious education. Each activity revolves around the following lessons and responsibilities we have as members of a community, both at a local and global level:
Protecting the environment
We love to see the children work together and embrace lessons of good stewardship towards their environments - their physical surroundings and the people that encompass them. We are grateful to have staff members dedicated to sharing these messages of building strong, supportive communities through the power of one.
