Meet Garysson!

Garysson Céné began at the Center of Hope (Haiti) school in 2012 and is now one of our fifth graders.  Like many of our students, he comes from a large family.  He has eleven siblings; two of his younger siblings also attend the Center of Hope school.  Garysson works hard in school and is proud to have maintained a minimum overall GPA of 8.5 (out of 10).  His favorite school subject is math and he aspires to be an engineer.  As he wrote in 2015, he wants to be an engineer “so I can build a house for my mother and father to live in, to build a house that I can live in.”

A Volunteer's Perspective

We were thrilled to welcome Jane Sampeur to Hinche this fall as a volunteer to work with the children.  I am pleased to share with you her thoughts on her experience.  Thank you, Jane, for being part of our community and COHH family.

Summer School 2012

Will Frager returned to COHH this summer. He left last August to begin his Master's degree program at the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. He immediately began his evaluation of the first year first grade and assisted with the administration of the final exams. At the same time, he began the preparation for our summer school. We were very fortunate to find a highly talented teacher, Darling Joseph, to lead the summer school class.

Mardi Gras!!!

Mardi Gras is celebrated around the world including throughout South America, Europe and the Carribean. Everyone seems to have their own special way of celebrating. Our children celebrated the first Mardi Gras at COHH this year. The children decorated their room and their faces and played games. A great time was had by all as they take a Mardi Gras recess for one week before returning to class.
