Ecole Communautaire Saint Michel
Unable to finish school, the founder dropped out in fourth grade to help his mother and father farm in the mountainside fields. This is the reality of many children in vulnerable communities across Haiti. The community school of Morne Mouton, or Sheep Mountain, was started by the founder who gave part of his land atop the mountain that has an outstanding view of the Central Plateau to originally serve as a place to teach adults how to read and write. After contacting Summits Education, it transitioned into a primary school. The founder was part of the first graduating 6th grade class and is now on his way to completing high school. During the construction of the school, the community came together to carry bags of sand and other supplies up the mountain. Many barefoot. Gerard Butler came to visit the school in Morne Mouton with our partner, Mary’s Meals. There is hope in the community: to one day have a computer room, planting of more trees to provide shade to the community, and water.
