School children growing their own food!

In St. Suzanne Haiti at the Notre Dame de Lourdes primary school, more than reading, writing and arithmatic is going on. With the severe food shortage, school director Sr. Adele decided to take matters into her own hands by teaching the children to grow their own food.

This program started with a little help from HBHH, but all of the work is done by the students who will reap the rewards of their labor. Imagine their delight to eat some of the vegetables that they have grown with their own hands!!

Yes, times are very tough in Haiti, but the future seems a little bit brighter when you watch this students learning to take care of themselves!
