Portable Schools with Musical Beds
Help to fund a new program that will bring free Lessons to Sticking Up For Children's four youth-education partners in Port-au-Prince and Cayes Jacmel, Haiti. The program conveys lessons to first-year students through mobile phones and the WhatsApp application. Lessons are in four Languages, Mathematics, Experimental Sciences, and seven other Subjects. The Portable Schools program's source is Madame Marie-Marthe Balin Franck Paul, Principal at College Canapé-Vert since 1974 and a former Mayor of Port-au-Prince. Madame Paul was Digicel's Entrepreneur of the Year in Education for the earthquake year of 2010. Madame Paul is also
the author a textbook, Mon Livre Unique de Ter Annee, distributed in 110,000 copies across Haiti. She's already recorded seven Lessons for the Portable Schools' program. Sticking Up For Children's additional partners in Haiti are the Foyer Espoir Pour les Enfants orphanage (FEPE) and the Ecole Foyer Espoir School (EFE) in Port-au-Prince and the Youpi Youpi School in Cayes Jacmel. All of our partner Schools in Haiti have grown their enrollments by more than 1/3 since 2014. All, however, too, were shut down due to anti-Administration protests across Haiti between early September and early December 2019. The Portable Schools' Lessons through mobile phones and WhatsApp and other applications is an alternative that can provide education anywhere, anytime, to students and their parents.
Also, musicians from Sticking Up For Children's large range of supporters are contributing pieces of music to enhance learning. Among the contributors to our Musical Beds so far are David Amram, Sarah Elizabeth Charles, Alex de Grassi, and William Parker.
