We are running two classes out for the Deaf Community in Lafresiliere and Regnier, Haiti. We had to walk many miles to recruit these deaf students to bring hope and changes to their lives and to make sure that they could communicate to each other and accomplish great things together. Some of the necessary skills these students will learn are sewing, bread making, blocs making, masonry, technology, cooking, etc. to help them with creativities and ways to become entrepreneurs and to be able to make a living in the future. The deaf community in Lafresiliere includes 5 deaf students, while the deaf community in Regnier includes 6 deaf students. Therefore, we now have a total of 11 students as we were encouraged to start small. We will have different retreats and picnics with them once transportation is being provided for them and more deaf people can join us.
All the deaf came from different towns. None of these towns are close to each other but they are connected in some ways and that is why we could not bring both groups in Lafresiliere. They just walked to the closest location from their home as some of them has their home damaged and it is still a distance. So, once we are ready to build a facility for them (we will choose the town in the middle and we already identified that location but no funds yet to advance the project”.
Right now, it is a matter of a building & transportation for them (Very Urgent). There is a possibility to have more deaf students to come to Regnier area, but there is a transportation remains an issue.
The teacher and I had to walk for more than 2 hours to meet some of the deaf students in their homes and spoke to their parents as well. The other ones joined us at the clinics within the two locations. They are very interesting…
Their teacher (Edouarzin Mireille) is a Christian Believer. Her sister is deaf as well. She enjoys teaching the deaf students, and the students love their teacher too. They learn, pray, and laugh together and go to her house sometimes to check on her.
We meet at the Clinic in Lafresiliere, Torbeck Haiti on Fridays (11:00 AM- 5:00 PM), and at the clinic in Regnier Monday, Wednesday, & Thursday from 8:00 AM-12 PM.
