The local news channel of Sacramento, CA, Univision 19, has followed up on our journey in improving Haiti. President Carolina Tavárez spoke about the new academic year and APL’s plans to fund raise for the organization, including the library project.
Every child should have the opportunity of learning and exploring new things. What better way to do that than reading? APL is proud to be working on offering the town of Anse-á-Pitres its very first library. With your help, we can make this project a reality for the students and community members.

Founder and president Carolina Tavárez made the first trip to Haiti in July of 2012. She spent a couple of weeks in Anse-á-Pitres and met students from two different schools: Communautaire du Bon SamaritainAdventist Lysius Salomon. Carolina was able to distribute toys, school materials and higenic products to over 200 students. The children portrayed as eager learners and were very greatful for the English and Spanish lessons. They are waiting for the next visit this coming December 2012, on which more members of the APL team are hoping to go. For more pictures of Carolina’s trip, visit the “First trip to Haiti” album under the Photo Gallery tab.
A word from Carolina: I’m so grateful to God, our donors and APL staff for all their support on this first trip to Haiti. We were able to assist over 200 students! I don’t know how it happened, but the supplies multiplied like the fish and bread in the bible parable of John 6. Without your support, none of this would have been possible. As my students in Anse-à-Pitres would say, “Mesi anpil: Thank you so much”
