In honor of Pere Bruno's Birthday
Pere Jean Monique Bruno is the heart and soul of what we do. Because of his vision and faithfulness, St. Barthelemy School was founded in 2003. The first classes of preschool and kindergarten students were the pride and joy of Terrier-Rouge, and as those first students grew, the school grew with them. Classes were added every year. A second floor was built, then a third, and eventually an additional three-story building was built to accommodate over 1,000 students! These students are exceeding the demands of the curriculum because of the high quality of teachers and their dedication to education. Truly, École St. Barthélémy is a part of the fabric of life in Terrier-Rouge.
This year we’re asking that you honor Pere Bruno by becoming a member of our Sustainers Circle, a special group of dedicated supporters who give monthly to help sustain our programs in Haiti. We love all our donors but our Sustainers are extra-special and we will be celebrating them throughout the year.
