One thought on “News and Awards

  1. Best regards.

    I really like “Our School Story”. The teaching and the experience shared on your website can be of great help to many young people in Haiti. I am working in solidarity activities in Haiti and I wonder if I can get a copy of your audiovisual.
    I will present it to the school teachers in Grand Anse, Jeremy, Haiti. I think of the wonderful possibility in creating a partnership to learn from your experience in order to apply it in Haiti.
    Thank you very much for your time and special attention.
    Sincerely,
    Ramón Torres Padilla
