Dear Lasallian Colleagues,
Greetings! On behalf of Brother Dennis Lee, Visitor, I invite you to join us in our 6th Annual DENA Advent Haiti Appeal. This year we will continue to have special projects for the St. Jean Baptist de La Salle College. Due to your generous contributions over the past five years this school continues to thrive and continues to serve as source of great hope for the local community.
This year, the Brothers were able to add a 10th grade to the school and they have plans for an additional grade each coming year. La Salle Academy in Providence, RI, will be working directly with the school in Port au Prince on several projects, and we thank them for their ongoing support and generosity.
Off the northern coast of Haiti sits the island of Tortuga.
There are seven Lasallian schools on the island, with a mixture of primary, secondary, and both. Two schools are located along the south coast and the other five in the highlands (along the ridge). Many schools have sessions in the morning and in the afternoon. The total student population in the seven Lasallian schools on the island is 2,686 as of October 2018
During the conversations that Alan Weyland had with the Brothers in Haiti, several projects were determined to be of importance in assisting the continued efforts to provide a Lasallian education on the island of Tortue. I invite you to consider supporting a project or two listed here on this page as part of your Advent activities. These projects come directly from the Brothers in Haiti and will have the greatest impact on the educational communities. Thank you for all that you do and for your consideration of this opportunity to make a transformative difference for our very poorest neighbors. Live Jesus in our hearts!
Have a blessed Advent,
Associate Executive Director
Office for Mission and Ministry
