The Executive Committee and the Board of Directors of HAAPAC would like to thank you for your sustained support since the inception of CEPAF (Centre Pilote D’Alphabétization Fonctionelle). Today, it is with exultation and pride that we are hereby announcing that this pilot program has successfully completed its embryonic stage, endured a transitional phase to finally evolve into a full-fledged elementary school named "ECOLE HAAPAC" in Cap-Haitien, beginning this academic school year 2009-2010.
This newly developed institution “ECOLE HAAPAC”, in accordance with the policies of the Department of the National Education in Haiti, has set out to have conferred upon all of its participants regardless of age, the "Elementary School Diploma" (Certificat d’Etudes Primaires-as we know it) at the successful completion of its programs.
On any given school day, a total number of 132 students, comprised of 92 children and 40 adults, are flocking to the building to receive what could not have been otherwise offered to them free of charge: basic education skills and a hot meal. 4 teachers actively attending to the children from 7a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; 2 teachers assisting the adults from 4p.m. to 7:30 p.m., the Director who oversees the general operations of the institution, the cook and a maintenance employee constitute the makeup of the administrative and ancillary staff at “ECOLE HAAPAC”.
We are forever indebted to you. Through your support, your generous contribution, we see the power of human kindness, your true spirit that fills us up with hope. The cause of educating and instilling in our less fortunate brothers and sisters in our native corner of Haiti the notion of a meaningful life is noble. We remain committed and hopeful of your continued support to achieve this mission.
