Delivering Backpacks to Mix Emmanuel Primary School

On my last day in Haiti I delivered backpacks and school supplies to children at Mix Emmanuel Primary School in Port au Prince. The school was very impressive and the director was a lovely man. Unfortunately, the classrooms had less than half of the amount of children that they could hold. Each of the 6 classrooms can hold 40 children, but due to the cost of schooling, families can not afford to send their children. The school asks each family to contribute 500 gourdes (approximately $12.50 per month.) and for many, that is too much. The children were very appreciative and had smiles from ear to ear when given a new backpack and supplies.
