This past November, four teachers from the Haitian school visited Rondout Valley High School to give a video presentation of their school and what they have been doing with the funds we have been sending them since the January 2010 earthquake. The presentation was filmed using the Flip camera, and they thanked us profusely for sending it because they feel that it has given them a way to communicate with the outside world and with potential supporters. It really has been amazing to see the effect that such a small device can have on the lives of so many people!
The teachers at the school are focused on becoming self-supporting through sale of their art and the art that the children make at the school. The Flip Camera is helping them to gain exposure for what they are doing in the United States. They are so hardworking, and their goal is to rebuild Haiti by teaching the children to be productive.
This has been a life-changing experience for me and my students. The Haitians we have met are such resilient, courageous and truly beautiful people. I would like as many people as possible to know about what they have accomplished in the face of such tragedy.
