Cherette School Project

Join our efforts to bring change in Cherette through the power of education.

A dilapidated school with cramped classrooms offered no protection from the sun and rain for school children in a rural area of Haiti.

In 2010, WEI worked with Solano Community College to rebuild that school in Cherrette. A year later, the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority joined the partnership to upgrade the school by constructing a new building with larger classrooms, an administration building with a library & resource center, a modern bathroom, and a modern kitchen. Joint efforts help educate approximately 300 students from Pre-K to 6th grade in an environment conducive for learning.
