Community Development: Disaster Recovery
Summary: Solar power to provide electricity for schools/orphanage.
In October, 2016, Hurricane Mathew destroyed the power grid in southern Haiti. An orphanage/children's community known as Pwoje Espwa (Project Hope), home to approximately 240 resident children, has been without electricity since the disaster. In addition to the resident students, there are local village children who also attend Pwoje Espwa. Overall, the schools provide education for over 1,000 students. The funds from this Grant will be added to other humanitarian grants/donations for construction of a sustainable power source i.e., solar.
This project is "Paid". This means that the funds from the district have been issued. This project is now being ready for implementation. When this is done, a report needs to be uploaded on the project page and the "Reported" button needs to be clicked, then the status of the project will be changed to "Reported".
