A small team from PEN PAPER PEACE e.V. travels to Haiti on a regular basis to visit the children and maintain personal contact with local partners. Unfortunately, due to the difficult political situation in Haiti, we are not able to travel there as often as we would like to.

2015

We started our trip to Haiti in September 2015 with the beautiful prospect of inaugurating the two schools St. Nicolas and St. Emma. The schools had been destroyed by the severe earthquake in 2010. As a result, we had launched appeals for donations and, together with the support from Germany and a considerable sum of money donated by Ein Herz für Kinder e.V., we bought two plots of land and had the two schools built by local experts - this time earthquake-proof.

It is wonderful to finally be able to see the completed schools with our own eyes and to feel the joy they spread, the joy that there are two places where children can learn without worries, where they are encouraged to dream and where they receive support to make these dreams come true. Moved and rich in impressions and new experiences we start our journey back home. At the same time we feel the responsibility to continue to pay the running costs. It will be a long time before the Haitian state will be able to finance a public school system.

In 2013, we were accompanied by a student ambassador to Haiti for the first time. Since then, Malin has been continuously reporting on her impressions as a children's reporter and mobilising schools to join forces for education in Haiti.

The first visit to Haiti after the terrible earthquake 2010. We visit our two schools, which have found temporary interim solutions to teach the students. And we look at properties that could be considered for building new schools.

In November 2009 we visit our two schools in Wharf Jeremie, one of the poorest districts of Port-au-Prince. About 300 children study here every day and get a warm meal for lunch.
