Natasha & Sonia Broman

During a 3-day volunteer trip at the Children of Haiti Project, Natasha and Sonia Broman, (daughter in law and granddaughter of COHP Board Chair, Forrest Broman), lead art projects that unleashed the children’s inner creative visions. During the workshops the children developed their sense of aesthetic by experimenting with various mediums raging from crayons and photography to acrylic usage. 

A great outcome of the workshop was that each student was able to take home a self-portrait in a personalized framed they created. For most of the children this will be the first time they see their own face framed and proudly displayed in their home.

Christmas at the Children of Haiti Project!

 

Thanks to 11-year old Bella Gibbons’ fundraising efforts, 260 students, their families and special guests were able to have a full Christmas meal. This year our special guests were children from a nearby orphanage that is undergoing a rough time and possibly closing, (image with Program Director and group of girls), and a group of 20 other children of the neighborhood. Thanks to 4HNYC each child received a gift of much needed undergarments. The festivities lasted well into Christmas Eve, and everyone left happy with a very full belly. Thanks Bella and 4HNYC!!

Focusing on Young Girls in the Community

The Children of Haiti Project is focusing on young girls in the community, (who are not our students), by offering them a safe haven to express themselves. Sponsored by LitWorld, they are offered literacy skills, safe lifestyle information, (Sex Education, Family Planning), and athletics. These girls generally live in high-risk undesirable, overcrowded conditions. This boost in self esteem and knowledge provides them with the tools to defend themselves, and inspires a potential better life.
