Baocia Children's Academy
Multi-Purpose Building

Haiti Partners One New Building,
Three Distinct Functions

Situated on the Haiti Partners Children’s Academy campus in Baocia, Haiti, this building will comprise three floors, each with a distinct purpose: a cooperative business; a training and community center; and a guesthouse for receiving trainers and trainees from Haiti and abroad.

This facility will make it possible for students to receive vocational training in a variety of skills, preparing them for the jobs and industries that will create economic growth in one of the poorest countries in the world.

Baocia Locals Learn How to Build

Extollo is training people from the community of Baocia to build this structure and providing needed jobs in the process.

From L to R, Extollo's Sherman Balch, Steve Poulos and Avery Pratt at the groundbreaking ceremony. Steve will manage the project in Haiti. On April 6, 2013, Extollo breaks ground on the multi-purpose building along with Haiti Partners and local preschoolers. The multi-purpose building will have three floors with a cooperative business, a training facility and community center and a guesthouse. The first floor foundation is complete and the block work on the outer walls is in the beginning stages. Alberto, Kenson and Monel show their appreciation for the opportunity to learn a new trade. The first floor window installation takes place. By May of 2015, the second floor and Training Center is built. Students at the Academy will receive vocational training in a variety of skills, preparing them for the jobs and industries that will create economic growth in one of the poorest countries in the world. Members of the local community of Baocia have learned valuable construction skills while employed on this project. An artist's rendering shows how the 3-story building will look when complete.
