Back to School – Haiti Style

Last year I had the opportunity to go to Haiti on a service project. I learned is that public school is almost nonexistent. A group of mothers, my friend calls them the Queen Bees, will do anything to make sure their children get an education. They built a school (see photo) and pay for a teacher. A teacher’s salary in Haiti is about $5/day or $80/month, a huge sum for these mothers. In my next book Mending Walls with the Billionaire*, Araceli and Kyle visit the Bees and help them with their chicken coop, (based on real chickens at the school).

I invite you to see more photos of the school on Instagram

* coming September 10th

70% of the profits from the sales of Mending Walls will help support these children and other organizations in Haiti.
