Two mums from Bolney School first visited Hope House Haiti school & orphanage in 2012, after they had heard about it through a family member. Initially the visit was to make contact and to form a ‘school twinning’ project with our local primary school Bolney CEP school and Hope Christian Academy. After this visit they were inspired to do so much more and the idea of a charity was formed.
On going visits initially from Bolney residents and teachers. In 2014 Mr Edwards a former teacher at Bolney CEP school undertook staff training and Teaching English. He lived at Hope House for 3 months.
By 2015 word had spread. In January 2015 a Medical Team of 8 visited to undertake medical screenings and establish medical records in the school.
In February 2015 a team of Architects visited to help plan the expansion of the school and farm.
The future looks busy and many areas where help and professional advice will be needed. Watch this space!
