The school in Ravine Sable, one of our oldest partner communities, sustained major damage during the 2021 earthquake. As part of our earthquake recovery plan, HomePlan and The Digicel Foundation generously supported the reconstruction of three classrooms and the renovation of four school blocks.

The school now has 19 spacious classrooms, meeting the standards of the MENFP, Haiti’s Ministry of Education. It also has an administrative space, a computer room, a depot and a sanitation block with handwashing stations.

Mr. Rode Petit Frère, Founder and Director of the school, says: “Ravine Sable now has one of the biggest and nicest schools in southern Haiti. We are grateful for this timely and continuous support, especially after the earthquake that inflicted significant damage to our school and community. The reconstruction of the three classrooms that collapsed and the renovation of the rest of the school mean ample and quality learning space for our students to learn and flourish. I want to say a huge thank you to Hope for Haiti for its longtime support and commitment to our school and community, and also to Home Plan and The Digicel Foundation, who contributed to providing us with such a nice school.”
