HELO Orphanage in Haiti

Computers for HELO

Thanks to a wonderful grant from the Orphaned Starfish Foundation (www.orphanedstarfish.org), HELO's September team carried laptops for HELO’s school.  With the assistance of Paulo Beaucejour, HELO’s new computer center was set up for the new school year.

Excited children assisted, carrying chairs on their heads, and eagerly waiting to see the computers in their school. chair A carpenter was hired to build a counter and cabinet to accomodate the ten new laptops, and the computer center was opened by week's end. 

Pictured below, the children paint a banner to express their gratitude.  Everyone at HELO lifts a huge THANK YOU to Orphaned Starfish for their generosity!!

Paulo has started classes on keyboard/typing.  Once the children are familiar and comfortable with the computers, additional computer and English classes will be offered.

We hope to have internet at the school soon and look forward to the tremendous learning potential it will bring to the children and students at HELO.

We sincerely thank Andrew Stein and everyone at Orphaned Starfish, Allison Mead, and everyone on the September team for making the computer center a reality.  Bondye bon!  God is good!
