St. Francois d'Assise in Port-au-Prince, Haiti

The Haiti earthquake destroyed many buildings across the island. A large number of these included schools and one among them, still finding it difficult to rebuild after the three years that have passed, is St. François d'Assise.

The school for girls, which is operated by the Sisters of St. François d'Assise, was almost completely destroyed by the quake. This year, the college celebrates its 50th anniversary, stronger, but still crippled by the loss of their technological resources suffered on January 12, 2010.

With a student body of 1,500, the school relies on technology to give an edge to its girls who are often from the strata of the poor, or suffer from learning disabilities. A generous donation from Polish sponsors of 12 Dell computers is currently put to good use, shared by the student body. However, there is a desperate need for 50 additional workstations for the primary and secondary schools of the college St. François d'Assise. Also necessary to equip the school with the vital tools that are synonymous with a sound education today is computer hardware like printers and A/V equipment such as projectors.

The year of 2010 brought many changes to Haiti, and to the Nouveau College Bird. It was to be the year of their 50th anniversary, and at the beginning, the college was decimated by the earthquake, a second time of desolation for the school in its impressive 50 year past.

Named after the American Methodist missionary Rev. Mark B. Bird, the Nouveau suggests rightly that the school had been reborn once before. It began as Wesley College, a school for both boys and girls, in the 1840's. After Bird's death in 1880, the school was moved and given its new name, then, College Bird. A fire gutted that building and today, after a build in 1960, Nouveau College Bird stands at the spot.
