On February 24th, the high-in-the-hills Children's Academy and Learning Center, a collaboration of Architecture for Humanity, BAR Architects in San Francisco and community organization Haiti Partners, celebrated the opening of its first school building.

"Over 1000 people attended, including a great many of the partners who have made the Children’s Academy possible," the Haiti Parners blog recounts. "Speeches were made, awards were given out, the WOZO choir sang, there was dancing," including a special Gagnam style demonstration from the community partner (not pictured).

Exactly two years have passed since the unforgettable catastrophe struck Tohoku and took away thousands of lives. We would like to send our condolences to all those affected, and those who are still waiting for their loved ones to be identified.

To commemorate this day, the Ishinomaki office held an event showcasing housing - a continuing issue for those who have lost their homes to the tsunami.
