Education from the ground up

Every day over 500 students cram into St Gabriel’s, the only all-girls primary school in Gros Morne, Haiti. This painted green and yellow and white wooden building has stood for more than a century and its stone steps have been worn down by thousands of little feet. It’s a happy place. Girls here know they can succeed. 

Typically 100% of St Gabe's graduates score well enough each year to go on to high school—though many do not have the financial wherewithal to do so.  Last year MBB provided high school scholarships to the school’s top 6 grads.  Many more will follow each year!
