Institute La Nouveauté de Gaudin

Built almost 20 years ago by Joy and Hope of Haiti, Gaudin is in the mountains west of Cap-Haitien. At OMS (One Mission Society), Guadin is notable for the sacrificial work done by Pastor Herode Pierre and his wife Rosalene, who regularly give up personal funds to pay their teachers’ salaries.

In the 2018-2019 school year, Gaudin had 105 children registered from kindergarten to grade 6. When we visited them early in 2019, they were down to just 61 students. We have reversed this trend as the school ended the June 2021 year with 110 students. We look forward to over 200 next year.

None of the teachers at Gaudin have their teaching certificate. Typically, certified Haitien teachers will work at schools that are able to pay them better and regular salaries.

Gaudin is water starved. While there is a mountain spring above the school which could allow water to be brought down the mountain to the school, the water tanks at the school are in dire need of repair.

Our Goals for Gaudin in 2021:

  1. Build a cistern with piping and repair the existing water tanks. $500.00 (total).
  2. Subsidise teacher salaries. $870.00 per month.
  3. Minor building repairs and a paint job. $1000.00 (total) and volunteers willing to help.
