Seventh Day: Unleash Kids Travels North to Hinche, Haiti and St. Andre’s School!

UnleashKids.org visited St. Andre’s in January to advance the One Laptop Per Child program. We are so grateful for this partnership of dedicated folks.

Haiti Dreams!

Early this morning we (Unleash Kids!) left Port-au-Prince for a 2 or 3 hour ride to St. Andre’s School in Hinche. Once here, we had some lunch and got to work checking out XO laptops and determining what kind of Wifi we can set up. Junior and Jeanide taught an XO class and we went over Sora’s recently developed class guide with one of the St.Andre’s teachers. After dinner, we stayed up flashing and fixing the laptops. It turns out around 200 students here are vigorously using them, and we’re very happy to see that!
