Back Home Safe and Sound

Our star students Rose and Patrick returned to Espwa this week after their month in the USA. The two came back knowing how to say "hello" in nearly every language, as they met students in the program from all over the world. Although they were sad to leave their friends and McDonald's hamburgers, they are happy to be back in the warm Haiti climate, eat their favorite Haitian dishes, and see all their friends as school starts this week. Their English is noticeably better, and it is clear that this experience was a life changing one for them. They were even featured in an article printed by a local Worcester news station.

After this incredible experience, we hope to continue our connection with Worcester Academy in the future. We are so very grateful for Marillyn and Jill who hosted them, and everyone else who welcomed, comforted, and made Rose and Patrick's visit a fantastic one.
