Last week, Lucky Rousseau, one of THP's most enthusiastic local supporters, sponsored the filming of a new promotional video for the Project. Rousseau's food distribution business, TOPCO-Haiti, provides in-kind support to the LCS food program, employs several LCS graduates, and has welcomed Philo (U.S. 13th grade) economics students for a tour of TOPCO's facilities.
Thank you, Mr. Rousseau for this most recent sign of dedication and faith in THP's mission of education for Haiti!
The filming coincided with a visit from a rising star on the electronic dance music scene - Michael Brun, son of local THP Board Member, Patrick Brun. Born and raised in Haiti, Michael is another advocate for the importance of education for Haiti.
Also last week, leading up to the all-school Mass in honor of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, rumor had it that Pope Francis was coming to say Mass at LCS. While the rumor was unfounded, the Philo class thought it sounded like a good idea. Led by Philo student Eduardo Massena, the students at LCS have begun a letter-writing campaign to encourage Pope Francis to visit Louverture Cleary School. Please add your prayers to their petitions and contact Kaitlyn Guzik if you would like to help.
The community at LCS wishes you a merry Christmas and many thanks for your continued support of THP! Wednesday updates will resume on January 7th after the Christmas break.
