The construction of this school with over 800 students in two shifts was made possible through co-financing of Happy Hearts Foundation created by Petra Nemcova and Stiller Foundation. The Charles Moravia National School is part of the educational heritage of the city of Jacmel. Founded in 1934, the school has trained thousands of children residing in Jacmel. For decades, the school faced serious difficulties. The school had functioned for some years in a rented house which suffered serious damage during the earthquake of January 12, 2010, forcing the school to leave the house and operate thereafter under sheds covered with tarpaulins. Today, this nearly century old school is now relocated on a large plot donated by the Haitian Government housing 9 classrooms, an administration office and latrines. Thanks to the generosity of the Happy Hearts Foundation, the school also has a computer lab with more than 20 computers, all connected to the Internet. The students of the National School Charles Moravia have access to different learning platforms. The Digicel Foundation is very pleased to contribute to the transformation and strengthening of communities. This new building will foster quality learning for hundreds of students attending Charles Moravia National school. “I sincerely thank the Happy Hearts Foundation and Stiller for their confidence in the Digicel Foundation and their support given to the communities of Haiti”, said Sophia Stransky, Executive Director of the Digicel Foundation.
