Yahve Shamma is a children’s home in Petionville, Haiti. Currently, more than thirty orphans receive care, provision, and—most importantly—love, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Yahve Shamma also serves as a community hub for the town of Petionville, a place that suffered great losses in the 2010 earthquake. In addition to the over 30 children living at Yahveh Shamma, over 150 other children from the Petionville community currently attend school at Williamson Adrien Academy, a school Help One Now helped build on the property.
This fundraiser will provide solar panels for the school, Williamson Adrien Academy. Electricity can be quite intermittent in small Haitian towns like Petionville, and solar panels will help limit the disruptiveness that power outages often bring to the school. Solar panels will also help to lower the operating costs of Willamson Adrien Academy, freeing up resources to more fully support the students.
