I got to go to a new place on this trip: Hinche (pronounced Aynsh), a large market town that is capital of the Centre department. I spent a week there with Haley, Gregory, and Marie, TESOL graduate students from the Monterey Institute of International Studies. It was great to be a part of their first time in Haiti, hearing their perspectives and seeing their passion.
Our host was Pere Noe, who just began working with the Episcopal church there, St. Andre’s. St. Andre’s is also the name of the school he runs, which has more than 1000 students enrolled in grades pre-K through the last year of high school.
