After the devastating 7.5 earthquake struck Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, in 2010, the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools constructed and opened the College Saint Jean Baptiste de La Salle in October 2012, welcoming 80 students. Today the number of students enrolled in pre-K through grade 7 is over 500; a remarkable transformation in 3 years! The Mother and Child Centre was dedicated in June of 2014 with a mission to offer education in hygiene, nutrition, and pre-natal care for the women of the locality, providing vital skills and a new-found sense of hope!
