Capva School

The Capva School is located in Cite Soleil, Haiti, one of the poorest communities in all of Haiti. It has been many years since the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti and evidence of the destruction is still visible in this troubled community. Life is not only difficult here, it is quite dangerous. Desperate people do desperate things.

Anacias Joseph is working to bring quality edcation to the children of Cite Soleil. A new school has been constructed as well as a medical clinic and a kitchen for preparing daily meals for the students. Anacias is working to bring an opportunity for the children. The Capva School is registered with the Haitian government and the Ministry of Education, however there is little help with the operation of the school. Anacias Joseph is the head of the school and the Executive Director is Vilsais Jean Louis. There are over 250 children attending the school and attendance is growing. The new school building provides classrooms for each grade, (K thru 6). It is a vast improvement over the previous one room school. Teachers often go without pay for months, yet they remain faithful to the school and the children of Capva. HOLD the children began supporting the school through the child sponsorship program in March 2014. HOLD the children seeks help from sponsors that contribute $39 per month toward the cost of education for these students. Education is a necessity to break the bonds of poverty in Haiti and these children need your help!
