In response to the 2010 earthquake that devastated Haiti, a disaster that killed and injured hundreds of thousands, displaced millions, and shattered the infrastructure of the nation’s capital, ACE sought to help the Holy Cross community and Catholic schools nationally recover and rebuild.
Strengthening Holy Cross in Haiti
Since 2010, ACE has supported the rebuilding and expansion of a flagship K-12 school in Port-au-Prince, Basile Moreau, and supported the construction of two new Holy Cross primary schools. ACE has also supported over 100 scholarships a year to Basile Moreau students and has supported quality improvements like an augmented technology program and English curriculum. ACE Haiti is currently exploring plans to support broader whole school improvement across the 21 Holy Cross School in Haiti, and develop a model for sustainable, high performing schools for the poor for the Haitian context.
