In Haiti we’ve discovered an unfortunate correlation between the distance a student must walk to get to school and her marks in the classroom: the greater the distance, the lower the marks. Some of the MBB scholarship recipients in Gros Morne, Haiti, walk several hours to and from school each day. By the time they reach home and finish their domestic chores, daylight is gone. Lacking electricity, the girls could not study. MBB recently delivered solar lamps to each of the scholars so that now they have a decent chance to do well in school. Here a grateful MBB Scholar poses for a photo holding her lamps.
