Janell Iyer, Kristi Lawson, and Kristin Veenema - teachers from Stamford High School in Stamford, CT, volunteered at the Children of Haiti Project to provide professional development for our staff in the areas of: classroom management, group work, modifying materials, and child development. They also worked with our students helping them practice basic skills in English. 

This experience not only benefited COHP, but will help these high school teachers to better assist their Haitian students back in Stamford because they have acquired greater knowledge of Haitian culture.

The Children of Haiti Project children and the Pan-American school of Costa Rica enjoyed a week of mutual learning through fun academic and sports activities that left a lasting impact on both groups.

The COHP children learned to be more assertive in communication with both their peers and their teachers. The activities focused on and reinforced courage, diligence, integrity, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, citizenship. These are traits and habits that the school bolsters regularly in order to create thoughtful, engaged citizens and the future leaders of Haiti.

Flag Day at the Children of Haiti Project

Yesterday on Haiti’s Flag’s Day celebration at the Children of Haiti Project, our children were involved in deep reflection about the 213th anniversary of the Haitian nation and flag through their own analysis. Several opportunities were seized to incorporate brief discussions on the meaning of freedom, democracy, and citizenship. These topics are incredibly relevant in a country ravaged by political instability

Dr. Armstrong Charlot

The students at the Children of Haiti Project are getting their regular health check this quarter from Dr. Armstrong Charlot, who has been volunteering his services since 2010. A clean bill of health for almost everyone, despite the challenges of Zika in the country.
