Breaking The Cycle of Extreme Poverty and Hunger With Education, Job Skills and Hope!

The Haiti Vocational School Project Kicks Into High Gear with a caramel roll fund raiser!

The first funding phase for the Haiti School Project is to raise the funds needed to purchase the land in Haiti for the school. To accomplish this we are selling giant caramel rolls, over a pound each, for just $7.50.

They are great for meetings, great in lunch buckets or any time as a snack with coffee or milk. Most of our Caramel Rolls weigh over a pound. They also freeze well and can easily serve 6 people. You know they are good because they are specially baked for us by Sunrise Bakery of Hibbing!

To make them easier for everyone to get, we are getting the help of some great retailers, who have agreed to make them available at their stores with 100% of the sales amount coming back to the project. So, you can now get them at any of the following locations and still be helping the project to move forward.

Local Volunteers Needed:
As you can imagine, there is much to be done and the help of dedicated volunteers, specialists, consultants and engineers are always needed and welcomed.

Right now we have an immediate need for volunteer help here on Minnesota Iron Range. We are looking for a volunteer with office experience to help compose and type letters as well as help with correspondence. We are also looking for several volunteers that are willing to help with the current caramel roll fund raiser.

If you are interested in volunteering, please call Edward Addy at 218-305-4100.

Trip #2 Completed Successfully
We're back in Minnesota. The trip was a success and we accomplished almost everything we planned, which is fantastic.

One of the things that I learned this trip is that if we are going to be in Haiti helping for the long haul we need to address several issues like security, living accommodations for volunteers and students and the climate. This can only be accomplished by building a our own small school facility.

In the future we will add a link to an area called building the new permanent school where we can provide information updates to those that are interested in our efforts. I believe that we should be able to educate about over 180 students per year with the new school. Continuing to teach basic electricity while adding entry level residential electric wiring to the course.

Our Partner In Haiti, Pastor St. Luc Noel:
Pastor St. Luc Noel is founder of the Evangelical Bible Baptist Church in Haiti. His ministry consists of 11 churches and 6 schools for grades 1-3 serving about 1000 children.

Even though he is busy with his ministry and schools he still finds the time to be a strong supporter of this project. He is our go to for anything that we need to find in Haiti. With his help, I believe that we could find almost anything over there.

We sincerely appreciate all of the time and help he provides to NACEC and this project.
