The Bati School team is persistently motivated by your support for the School. As a proud partner of GivingTuesday they wanted to do the part in educating you about the this global initiative (started out of NYC!) that’s come alive over the last two years.Why Bati School?
BATI School is a certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on making long-term investments in education through the use of agriculture, bringing about sustainable solutions and long-lasting change for the future leaders of Haiti. The school will be an elementary school in Miragoane, Haiti, 51 miles / 81km southwest of the capital Port-au-Prince. Your donation will go towards building and maintaining the school’s campus in order to provide an exceptional education to our students.
We seek to provide a nurturing yet demanding learning environment that fosters both high academic achievement and a sense of responsibility. Since Haiti has abundant natural resources, we believe that agriculture can be a critical tool to help the girls of our school and Haiti at large, creating a stronger, wealthier and more independent future. In this process, the self-respect, creativity and confidence they develop will make them an example for the next generation of Haitian leaders.
Haiti has many bright spots; among these is the availability of vast intrinsic resources. We have 5 acres of arable land allocated specifically for the school’s use, with several producing mango trees already on site. Ultimately we envision creating a self-sufficient environment where some of the harvested crops will be used as a source of nourishment for our students. The remaining produce will be used to generate income for the continued development of the school’s campus.”
