For our first highlight ever, meet Albalo: the #1 honor student from our classes in Anse-a-Pitres. He always shows up to class with his materials, pays attention, asks questions, and even translates for the teachers. He excels in every subject and his cheerful attitude puts a smile on everyone’s face. It is because of students like Albalo that APL is happy to work so hard. In the picture below, teacher Lidia is awarding him with the top prize of the intense course of summer 2014.
Thank you, APL community, for shaping a bright future for our students and the nation of Haiti!
Patricia Boone, APL member, and the Black Law Students Association of Northwestern University School of Law have been hard at work this year fundraising for the community of Anse-à-Pitres, Haiti. They have just informed us of the amount: $500!

APL partners with Project Rive, founded by Sora Edwards-Thro, an organization which puts the tools Haitian kids need to learn within their reach. They are accomplishing this through technology, by providing XO laptops to students in the town of Anse-a-Pitres.
Project Rive is making great progress, and we want to share the news! Sora shared a bit of it with us, “We were able to raise money for the solar system and we got it set up in Ansapit. Thank you again for APL’s contribution and support. With this new system we can charge all 10 laptops at once, and we can store power in the battery for rainy days. We also installed a light so we can have classes at night.”
