Grassroots Community Development in Borgne, Haiti.

HOW Can I Contribute?

Borgne Library

Work on a brand new library was completed this fall. The library is a first for the commune of Borgne and will house a modest collection that includes resources for teachers as well as reading materials in French, Haitian Creole and English for a broad age group. We are grateful to GO Campaign for funding this project.

Through a generous grant from the GO organization, the community of Borgne has renovated a building for its first library.  This space will allow for the acquisition of books to share with the children of Borgne.  The space will be a gathering place for children, teachers, and parents to explore the world around them and the broader environment.  Children will learn the concept of a lending library, be able to check out books to read, and expand their world through reading.

The needs: H.O.P.E. seeks partners to develop the holdings for the library.  We seek initial holdings of 2000 books.  We seek individuals, groups, and organizations that are willing to provide resources to purchase books for the library
