New School Year Plans

Academic year 2019-2020 begins September 2. Project Nourish and Jean Jaques Dessalines Community School have been working together to prepare for a successful year. We have re-examined and refined our practices and procedures to account for new circumstances while continuing to ensure efficiency, transparency and performance. We have planned and budgeted the schoolyear with improvements to data reporting and analysis, teacher salaries, curricula and classroom resources. Repairs and upgrades to the school building and grounds are nearing completion. The school administration and staff are preparing classrooms and lesson plans; and parents are enrolling their children. 

Thanks to donations from faithful givers, Project Nourish has provided a healthy lunch to students and staff during summer mathematics and French language classes. We will continue the lunch program throughout the upcoming schoolyear.

Project Nourish is working with the community of Cabois and medical personnel from Haiti and the United States to provide medical examinations to all students and school staff. The medical treatment provided by Project Nourish and our partners during clinics has been a tremendous blessing to the community. As we expand our medical program, we hope to soon provide continual access to care for the surrounding communities.

The school administration recognizes the potential benefits of a broader education and will be adding dance, sports and English language courses this year. These programs will take some time to develop and fully integrate into the curriculum, but the students, parents and teachers are excited for these new opportunities. We are excited too!
