Ecole Communautaire St. Philippe & St. Jacques

On a small island in the middle of Lake Pèligre, the mode of transportation for most students and teachers is carved canoes. Materials and supplies take the long journey over the mountains and across the water to reach this school in the company of honey, rice and tobacco farmers. Palm trees arch above the small wooden school and there is a dream to make a soccer field out of the remaining land so that students and the community may gather to play during recess and weekends.
