Our ESL (English as a Second Language) School has started up again. We have one group in the morning and one group in the afternoon. We meet twice a week for classes. Since we know a little bit more Creole, we were able to speak with each individual child. We learned that out of 26 kids only two of them have both parents. Many of them live with a relative or a family friend. In one case, three siblings are living together on their own since their parents were killed in the earthquake.
A few months ago, we received t-shirts from JDM Associates, Inc. We distributed them among our kids and used them as our “uniform.” In Haiti, it is a custom to have a uniform or t-shirt that identifies you belonging to a school and/or organization. This was a very big deal for our kids. Right now our t-shirts have a baseball logo on them, but we hope that one day we will have our own logo for our kids.
