StudentsRebuild will be awarding grant money to a first round of Haitian schools at the beginning of October and is featuring overviews of the four first schools at the Build Schools page. Be sure the check out that page for more information, but a recap of the candidates can be found below:

École Baptiste Bon Berger "Good Shepherd", Pele, Port-au-Prince
A two-story critically damaged school requires a replacement with improved ventilation and sanitary restrooms. Serving 1100 students, Baptiste Bon Berger's new school of 20 classrooms would be phased in over several years, replacing the tents now on site and freeing the church to more community involvement. The new school design also includes teacher dormitories looking out over the school courtyard. Check out a recent charrette at Good Shepherd

Collège Mixte Le Bon Berger, Montrouis
Collège Mixte Le Bon Berger is a six-classroom, 12-grade school built just a few years ago that nevertheless must be entirely replaced. Our team has made several visits to this coastal town north of Port-au-Prince to conduct charrettes with the school owners and faculty. A new scheme is to include rain water catchment and handicap accessibility for Bon Berger's 300 returning students. Read Bon Berger's story

Institut Foyer du Savoir, Delmas 75, Port-au-Prince
Currently operating out of a converted house, Institut Foyer du Savoir ("Home of Knowledge Institute") is looking for a site for their new school. Since the earthquake and destruction of their old building, the Institut has determined their old site, a rented piece of land, was not suitable for the 50% student expansion they're anticipating. The quest is on for a site to support 300 students in a traditionally-design timber frame school campus. Catch up with the Knowledge Institute

École La Dignité, Cayes de Jacmel
École La Dignité is the only free private school in the Jacmel are and supports 8 localities from as far as 3 km, including Corrail Soult, Nan Model and La Pierre. The school currently has 227 students from grades 1-6 and intends to expand its program to include grades 7 and 8, requiring the construction of two new classrooms at the front of the property.
