ChrislandeMeet Chrislande, a student at J Nissi School in Cité Soleil, Haiti.

Our local lead in Haiti, Jacque Jackson, had an opportunity to interview Chrislande during a recent visit to the school.

  • Chrislande is in the 5th grade at J Nissi School.
  • Her favorite subject is science, in particular the environment. She likes to think about different ways that she can prevent pollution and protect the earth.
  • One day, Chrislande dreams of being a doctor. Where she lives in Cité Soleil there is a lack of medical support. As a doctor, she could support the people who need help in her community.
  • She likes to talk to her friends about the importance of school. She encourages them to study because with an education they can do good things in their future.

We respect Chrislande and are proud to be working with our partners in Haiti and supporters in the United States to develop a strong school in Cité Soleil.
