Ecole Communautaire Mixte Espoir
The school in the community of Peligre is the most recent addition to the Summits network. It is home to the largest hydroelectric power station in Haiti, built in the 1930s that flooded the plateau where homes and farms once were. In 2009 three surrounding community members, Mr. Fede James Dorsainsil, Mrs. Val Darline and Mr. Louisius Fores set up the Mixte Espoir de Peligre School. The school was built to keep children from fleeing to bigger cities so that they could stay with their families and reduce the financial burden on students’ families. The American Embassy and Japanese Embassy have helped the school build its current building.
