School Construction at Fort National

on Education by Salvation Army World Service Office

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Salvation Army’s (TSA) Fort National school has been in operation in its community for over 15 years. During that time it has always been an example of excellent educational standards and service and an outlet for TSA’s ministry in the community. TSA provides education for 270 children in the Fort National community in Port-au-Prince. On January 12, 2010 a 7,0 magnitude earthquake significantly damaged Fort National, completely destroying the school building that had been standing. This project will develop and construct new facilities for the Fort National school as well as secure and improve its ongoing operation. The facilities will be enhanced beyond the previous structures and designed to withstand another natural disaster.

ACTIVITIES

1) Design and construct new facilities for the Fort National school; 2) Hire and train maintenance staff; 3) Operate school for 5 years in full compliance with TSA and government standards; 4) Conduct trainings for teachers and School Advisory Committees every year.
