We are all aware of the devastating effects of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti. Some have asked what we can do as a school to help. The School Sisters of Notre Dame have partnered with an organization called Beyond Borders which already has a presence in Haiti.
Beyond Borders has committed to accompanying 100 Haitian families for the next 18 months, making sure that their houses are rebuilt, that they have safe drinking water and sanitation, that they get livestock or other goods and the training that they need to be able to begin generating an income. The cost will be $100 a month or $1800 for the full year and a half. Our fundraising efforts will start in November. All proceeds from our fundraising will be sent to the SSNDs and Beyond Borders to sponsor families in Haiti.
