We need $6,000 to finish IMECT school near Petit Gouave, Haiti, destroyed in the January 2010 earthquake. Our tiny group in the Virgin Islands has managed to keep it running ever since, educating and feeding 200 children, through art sales and private donations, in a plywood temporary building we built for only $7,500.

This month we finally received re-construction funds that had been held up for 3 years! We were only given US$10,000, all that was left in the fund. This has now built the foundations and walls of three classrooms and a kitchen - but we're out of money to pay for the doors, roof, stucco and paint... For another $6,000 we can finish the school, and have children in the classrooms getting their education from next month. The new kitchen will also make it more hygienic, feed more people, and enable the parents to sell local produce, starting microbusinesses that benefit the community and keep kids in school. We feed all the children their main meal every day.

"100% for Haiti" is combining forces with Good Samaritan Foundation of Haiti to run the school from December 2013, and this is our first joint fundraiser - PLEASE HELP meet our goal!
