Bridge to Haiti: A New Name for the Computer School in Grande Saline

BridgetoHaitiLogoComputer classes continue in Grande Saline and the school is adding more students.  The solar equipment installed by the 2015 Health for Haiti class is working well and the new table allows ten or more children to work at the same time. I am happy to report that the community in Grande Saline has decided on a name for their computer school: “Don Bosco Ecole Informatique de Rossignol”.  The families chose this name for their school in honor of Saint John Bosco, an Italian priest who dedicated his life to the education of street children and disadvantaged youths. In a recent message, Dr. Robinson explained how the parents feel about the school, “They are so happy and say it’s a privilege for them to get this school in their area and so happy to see the children and young people learning computer. The school is in the benefit of all of them, and they feel their children learn something better for their future.”

Below are some recent pictures from computer class at Don Bosco Ecole Informatique de Rossignol. Thank you to the Bridging the Digital Divide Program (BDDP), the SUNY Broome BIT department, Geodis, and Pall for computer literacy training materials and laptops, and thanks to all who have made donations to support the Bridge to Haiti program.
