LakayTimoun Building Fund
In August 2020, LakayTimoun opened its doors to a record 100+ students, kindergarten through fifth grade. Yes, our schoolyear started earlier than most in the area, but for two reasons: COVID-19 disrupted classes in Haiti, and political strikes added to the missed days.
Thanks to the generosity of folks just like you, we were ready with new classrooms and bathrooms at the start of the year.
Our expansion continues with Phase 2, including additional classrooms. The needs are great, and we're still bursting at the seams.
Challenges have been multiplied with ever-rising inflation in Haiti; food costs alone are up almost 24 percent from this time in 2019.
Our overall monthly costs have risen by $2,500.
We're on the verge of adding three more classrooms for additional students, bringing the total to 12. These permanent structures will add to the kitchen and classrooms built in recent years. Students who attend are ensured both schooling and meals.
Work is being done by locals in a true community effort, proceeding as supplies and funding are available.
The additional space allows LakayTimoun to continue broadening our impact on the local area, not only offering essential education for kids, but also solid work and salaries for teachers and other staff.
From the very beginning, LakayTimoun has stretched every dollar through faith, strategy and divine intervention. We have seen God move in miraculous ways, coming through with just what we need, again and again, at just the right time.
