Kite Day

Our work here in Haiti has meaningful impact here in the States too, when the minds and hearts of people back here at home are touched by it in some way. One such example occurred when Penny B, a teacher at Ada Elementary School (Ada, Michigan) returned to her classroom after coming down with one of our teacher training teams. Her life forever impacted, Penny’s overflowing heart could not help but share her experiences with her 2nd graders and fellow teachers. The result has been that the students at Ada Elementary have developed an ongoing dialogue with students of the schools here on La Gonave. Recently, Penny and her Haitian teacher counterparts organized a “Kite Day,” where kids of both schools made kites from scratch, personalizing them with messages of kindness and goodwill toward each other.
