1000 Words: Learning Amidst The Rubble

Children enjoy a short recess at a local community school in Gressier, Haiti, playing in and around the partially destroyed building that houses some of their classes. A new three-room school building (not pictured), built by short-term teams from ReachGlobal/TouchGlobal, only provides space for some of the more than 120 students that now attend the school.

The community school was founded by Maxo, a Haitian UN worker and ReachGlobal ministry partner, to provide education for children whose parents cannot afford to pay for their schooling.
