Project Story

After the earthquake in January 2010, A Better World became involved with some of the relief efforts, but soon began to move into development.vThe earthquake heavily affected much of rural Haiti, whether in the immediate zone of damage, or areas all throughout the country. Population increased in some cases by more than 50% putting strains on education, healthcare, and the food supply. One of the regions of highest internal migration post-quake was the central plateau, where this project is located.vDezam Primary School, in a very poor rural area, has had to confront the heavy burden of a doubling of its student body as a result of education opportunities in Port-au-Prince coming down in the quake. ABW constructed 6 new classrooms at this school.

After the earthquake in January, 2010, A Better World became involved with some of the relief efforts, but soon began to move into development.

The earthquake has heavily affected much of rural Haiti, whether in the immediate zone of damage, or areas all throughout the country. Population has increased in some cases by more than 50% putting strains on education, healthcare, and the food supply. One of the regions of highest internal migration post-quake was the central plateau, where this project is located.

Dezam Primary School, in a very poor rural area, has had to confront the heavy burden of a doubling of its student body as a result of education opportunities in Port-au-Prince coming down in the quake.

Port-au-Prince is the educational centre of Haiti, and any effort to support educational infrastructure outside the capital should be seriously considered.

At Dezam Primary School, A Better World is constructing six classrooms. Part of the structure was already present but incomplete.
