Bernaco is a small village tucked between rolling green mountains in Haiti's Central Plateau. Ecole Communautaire Annonciation, the community school here, was founded in 1991. Back then, the school was little more than a small shack built under mango trees that would often wash away after heavy rains.

Today, the school is a robust five classroom building serving nearly 230 primary students. But Ecole Communautaire Annonciation isn't just a school, it's the center of the small community of Bernaco. The school hosts clinics, trainings, meetings, and even weddings.
