Since the last post, the floors of the school house at Fort Jacques have been all tiled thanks to PnC ceramics in Port au Prince that donated all the tiles and a team of 4 men from Norman Oklahoma who spent 4 hard working days putting down the tiles on both floors.
Here you can see pictures of one of the classroom and the hallway upstairs.
On the bottom floor they put an amazing design in the tiles with a cross as the center piece. Just think that the first thing the children will see as they enter the school everyday will be the cross.
The next two pictures show the team at work and the team behind their artwork with two of our Haitian workers who helped them with everything from moving tiles, mixing the tin set and cleaning up. From left to right, you have Maurice, one of our workers, Mark, Donnie, Micheal and James from the team and Jean Bernard our other Haitian workers.
We want to thank again PnC Ceramics for donating all the tiles and the team for their hard work. As we have a deadline of December first to have everything ready for the toddlers to move to Fort Jacques we are in need of framers, painters, electricians and a bunch of people ready to just clean and move the things from the old toddler house to Fort Jacques.
