Help Fundraise to Rebuild Education in Haiti
On August 14th, 2021, a devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti. Its epicenter was in the southern region surrounding Les Cayes, where buildOn constructs schools that serve tens of thousands of people in Haiti’s poorest communities.
As roads that were impassable begin to re-open, our team has begun to assess the damage to the 178 schools we have constructed in the region. At this time we are estimating that 20% of our schools in Haiti may need to be rebuilt and 60% will need repairs. Meanwhile, scores of communities that had substandard schools are now totally without classrooms. Today, it is essential that the buildOn community come together so that in the coming weeks and months we can repair damaged schools, rebuild new earthquake-resistant schools, and break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations in Haiti.
