Ecole Communautaire Ascension

A project of Father Lafontant’s sister, Yolaine, in 2004, the school in the community of Blanchard was constructed. Communities like Blanchard-Péligre had once lived in the plateau before the dam flooded their land. Lakeside and nestled beneath a clove of trees, it provided children who would fish during the day or cross the lake to go to school in a community called Chapoteau a closer solution.
