Ecole Communautaire Annonciation

With a group of 40 students, the school in the community of Bernaco was originally constructed out of pieces of wood and sticks. When the rainy season came each year, they would be forced to move. Since Summits’ involvement, the school is now fully constructed and has been chosen as one of the 10 model schools in the network. The principal, Wilfred Philatre, is an alumni of the primary school and after receiving a scholarship from Zanmi Lasante to continue his studies and graduate university, he returned to his community to work in the school. The school is a source of pride for the community, and is a place where weddings, like Principal Wilfred’s, baptisms and mobile health clinics are held.
