Ministries rebuilding Haitian trade school

They’re rebuilding hope one brick at a time.

Calgary-based non-profit organization Haiti ARISE Ministries is in the midst of rebuilding its trade school that was in place in Grand-Goave for seven years before the January earthquake destroyed it, according to vice-president James Roberts.

“The damage was too bad to save the school but we tore it down and now we are starting over.
“But at the same time it will allow us to build necessities sooner than we would have been able to before,” Roberts said,

Roberts said the hope the team feels as it rebuilds is paramount to the project that may take up to three years.

“We have hired some of the students to help rebuild.

“The thing is we aren’t just building it, we are empowering them and equipping the Haitians at the same time.”
