Pandemics, climate change, war and conflict, global inequality…Our ability to live in harmony together and with our planet has not kept up with technological advancements. How did we get here? Might the formal education of our children be a big part of the problem?

Haiti Partners staff has been engaged in Haiti in education for nearly thirty years. Ten years ago we embarked, with our community, on an adventure of creating a school that would be different. “Learning for life” was a theme that emerged as community members envisioned what we wanted: a school that truly prepared children to create a better life for themselves, their families and their community and a place where people in the community would learn for the rest of their lives. We call what we’re creating at The Children’s Academy with our staff, students, their parents and others involved a school-based community development model. Permaculture gardening, social business, discussion-based learning, monthly community meetings…we’re learning things that can be useful elsewhere.
