Institution Mixte La Foi de Lafferonney (official French title)
Referred to by the original name: Faith Academy
Directed by FanFan Janvier
Faith Academy is located outside of Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti.
This rural area is significantly more populated than it was when the school first began in 2006!
Faith Academy provides education for about 400 Students.
Students start as young as age 3 (two years of pre-k)
Grades pre-k to 6th grade are offered. A 7th grade class was added Fall 2016.
Faith Academy’s feeding program provides lunch to all students.
Teachers identified one of the biggest obstacles to learning was hunger. The kids were too fatigued or distracted by hunger to pay attention. All students are now offered a free lunch.
- Adding a 7th Grade class (with 8th & 9th grades to follow in the coming years)
- Converting current classroom space into restrooms upstairs and downstairs, replacing the two out-house style bathrooms
- Building a new kitchen next to the cafeteria, so food distribution and cleanup are much easier
- Changing the old kitchen into classroom space
