Ecole Communautaire Bon Samaritain

Before coming to work in the community of Loncy, the principal once served as a teacher in the Summits school across the lake in Vieux Cayes. His dedication to education doesn’t stop there. After managing the primary school in the mornings, he works as a middle school teacher in the afternoons at the school. It was a community effort to build the school, a nod to its name bon samaritan, or good neighbors. One of the best schools in the area, final exams are held here, as well as literacy summer camp. It’s the pride of the community serving so many children in rural areas, and used as a gathering space for preachers and community health agents traveling during the summer months.
