Ecole Communautaire La Sagesse
After founder Michelle Tirone’s father died, she returned to the community to continue his dream: a school that served the greater community of Delagon. She built the school that continues to operate beneath a fragile wooden structure on her family’s property. Without the school in the community of Delagon, students would have to make their way across flat farmland that promises beans, rice, bananas and mangos to cross the Artibonite river to attend school in the main town of Mirebalais.
