UPDATE FROM THE CHILDREN'S ACADEMY
It saddens us to report that the school office was broken into last weekend with five laptops being taken. Three of them were Macbook Airs, 3-4 years old and two were refurbished DELLS that were donated to us. Fortunately, three laptops are still with us.
Alex and Vladina are confident that we can continue to function with two laptops. Alex organized a big circle last Monday morning with parents, staff, teachers, clinic staff, even students to talk about it and to invite engagement. What an amazing display of strength, solidarity and determination amidst a very difficult circumstance. Haiti Partners and Children’s Academy staff, accustomed to setbacks in a place of such disparity, strive to view every situation as an opportunity to learn (so that it doesn’t happen again) and also to galvanize our culture of positivity and determination despite such challenges. We invite financial and laptop donations to replace what was lost.
