Slovenian school

September 11th, 2013

Slovenian school in Haiti is a project started in Slovenia, when slovenian representative of IRD GLobal, Eva Marn, asked Slovenian government to responde to Haiti disaster. After meetings and brainstorming three parts got involved into project; Slovenian Foreign ministry, IRD and Food For Life. The goal of the project was to establish school in Carrefour, small town that is away 60km from Por Au Prince (capital city).

Due to hunger, many children stop attending school or in they follow class porly . Sport education is also an important part of the physical education curriculum, but schools lack the equipment to implement it. The project aims at the existing Slovenian school to build and establish a community kitchen and also allow pupils access to quality and warm meals. Project ends on October 2013, but for us it is acctualy starting to cook everyday meal for 150-300 children.

Our main challenges are to extablish working kitchen and ensure longterm funds to cover costs of feeding.
Our estimated monthly costs just for cooking are 7.000 and they involve food items, gas, electricity and house costs for volunteers .

Our longterm desired goal is to help feed people living in a slum of styrofoam houses. There is estimated number of 3.000 inhabitants.
