Shown here is the interior courtyard of one wing of the women’s dorm from the first phase of the construction project. Soon these rooms will be furnished and ready to receive 50 female students who can sleep and study in a safe and secure environment.
About this Mission Project
The 2010 earthquake that rocked Haiti destroyed the Port-au-Prince universities. The North Haiti Christian University (UCNH) took in 94 students resulting in severe overcrowding. They’ve undertaken a 4 part construction project for a new women’s dorm that will eventually house 200 students.
Phase one – to build the foundation and one wing is complete thanks to support from Baptist World Alliance ($20,000), a nursing school in Norway ($2,000) and American Baptists who gave $15,000. They’re ready for phase 2 – to build the second main wing at a cost of $25,000.
UCNH is committed to preparing leaders who are transformed in the image of Christ. These leaders will go on to develop and transform Haiti and the world for the advancement of the kingdom of God.
- A gift of $100 will purchase 15 sacks of cement for the foundation of the new wing.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $25,000 for the construction of the second wing of the women’s dorm at the North Haiti Christian University. The purpose of the project is to relieve the severe overcrowding on campus and make it possible for another 50 students to live on campus rather than commute more than an hour each way daily from Cap Haitien. This project will be managed by Rev. Dr. Jules Casseus, Rector of the University.
It is anticipated that this project will provide a safe and comfortable place for female students, enabling them to pursue their course of study.
