Going Green



There are several things that will have to change overtime for Haiti to escape the dire poverty that currently chokes it. One of those things is the environment.  For a country to attract investment, it has to be attractive. Insecurity, lack of law enforcement, and problems in the cadaster also block investment--but these obstacles ultimately require government action to change. On the other hand, environmental improvements, at the most basic level, can be accomplished by a small group of conscientious individuals and even an individual.  At LCS, we are working on many levels to make Haiti a greener place. Below you will read about three actions in this campaign from some of our staff and volunteers on campus.

LCS’s First AD

Maybe it is the influence of the Notre Dame Volunteers [who are a bit down this week with ND's performance Saturday] or just the fact that wherever there is a group of young people sport is likely to occur. Either way, there has always been a constant pressure to improve our physical education classes and sports teams at LCS.

Support—Old and New

I am pleased to report that the “Building Stronger to Serve Better” Renovation Campaign is off to a great start.  Response from the community has been immediate and inspiring. To date, we have achieved 80% of our goal in pledges and gifts with only 20% left to meet our needs for building renovations and plans to continue help improving housing for our staff and neighbors in need.  We hope to meet the goal by the end of December.  I appreciate the strong support for our mission. I especially thank those who made the leadership gifts during the initial phase of the campaign and those who have responded to the special mailing.
