Ten years ago, Fanel LEME started Eagle School in Jacmel, Haiti to contribute to the betterment of the Haitian education system by increasing school access to the children of Jacmel. The school is giving the least of these the opportunity to attend a school. Students are also taught to have a relationship with Christ and be leaders in their communities.
The project is based on the quote of Nelson Mandela- “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.”
Seventy percent of the funds to build at the location were donated by friends in the U.S. that believe in the things that Fanel is doing, and the things are always obvious. People like donating to this childhood education program because they see where their money goes. Every year, the school has to limit welcoming many new kids due to space limitations. The need keeps increasing and the local kids thrive to being a part of Eagle School. The school currently has 239 students ranging in Kindergarten through sixth grade.
During the 2018 school year, an expansion project and GoFundMe campaign completed the addition of two classrooms to welcome more kindergarteners and first graders. Another room was added in 2019 for 2nd graders. Also, a neighboring house was rented in 2022 so that we could house and teach up to the 6th grade. It is important for the school to grow so kids that complete a grade can further their education in the same school. Based on the method of teaching, Eagle School is ranked among the top five best elementary schools in the Community of Jacmel. We provide lunch to the students three times a week and for most of the students, this is the only meal they have for the whole day. Besides the school subjects, children learn English, basic farming class, dance, art, bible scriptures and other skills.
The students are getting older and advancing to higher grades. We currently have an immediate need of a new school for grades 4 through 6. Our dream is to provide a school for up to the 12th grade. For the grades 4-6, we have designed to build at new location for 5 classrooms, a library, a kitchen, and a playground. We have already purchased the land at a great location for the school and have built a wall surrounding the property. In addition, we have constructed the foundation and the first floor walls. We have a great need to continue raising money for the completion of the final construction phases to complete and open the school.
