Building a School in Haiti – Phase 1
About This Mission Project
The Ecole du l’Enfant Epanoul school in Haiti began in 2000. Its goal is to provide a quality education in a Christ-like setting to children in families of limited means.
Since its formation, the school’s location has changed four times. Currently it is located in a house rented on a yearly grant basis. The house is old, unsafe and not up to earthquake codes. A number of safety issues are raising concerns.
This project will help the Ecole du l’Enfant Epanoul to construct a new, safer building. This will enable the school to expand enrollment from 190 students to 300.
- $50 provides two rolls of wire.
- $100 provides three meters of sand.
- $250 provides one ton of half-inch rebar.
- $500 provides 700 cement blocks
Mission Project Specifics
International Ministries seeks to raise $21,000 for the first phase of a $100,000 project to construct a new, earthquake safe building for the Ecole du l’Enfant Epanoul school for children from low income families in Haiti. A larger school building will allow for higher enrollment.
This project will be managed by the founder and principal of the school Marlene Dorsinville with help from Joel Dorsinville.
It is anticipated that this project will enable the school to expose more children to the gospel, nurture them as they grow in their faith and transform their families and communities through the power of education.

Education is a liberating tool for the children of Haiti. Learning to read and write gives them the chance at better jobs, and encourages them to envision a different future.
