As GiveLove continues it efforts to improve the sanitation issues in Haiti the Cause is also continuing its efforts to help the people of Haiti feel that they are loved and seen.  One of the programs the Cause is very involved with is its Green School Program.   The video attached shows the fun part of the job where GiveLove has the chance to share their love with the children by giving them brand new shoes.  These children are schooled at the Green School at AMURT where GiveLove has created a beautiful example of sustainable sanitation at work in Haiti.

Green School Program

One of GiveLove’s greatest achievements is its Green School Program. They currently work with primary schools in Port-au-Prince to provide on-site compost centers that eliminate dangerous and polluting pit latrines. GiveLove now provides clean, dignified toilets and hand-washing stations for over 4,000 children. The Green Schools have helped convert the AMURT School from a bare IDP camp to a lush garden.

GiveLove has provided free design consulting and technical support to build Green Schools for Architecture for Humanity, AMURT organization, Haiti Partners, and SOPUDEP. Hundreds of visitors representing Clinton Foundation, USAID, Partners in Health, Habitat for Humanity, Architecture for Humanity, and JP/HRO have visited the Green School at AMURT campus to see a beautiful example of sustainable sanitation at work in Haiti.
