Batesville Rotary Home Repair Grant

The Rotary Club of Batesville was awarded a District Grant from Rotary District 6580 (southern Indiana) for a total amount of $6,000 for the purpose of repairing 2 or 3 homes in the area of Gandou, Haiti.In the area of Gandou, Haiti, there are around 10,000 people living in approximately 2,500 houses. With the earthquake that struck Haiti on January 2010, it was reported that 636 homes were crushed and an additional 480 were damaged in the area of Gandou. A typical home in Gandou is a 2-room building.The main reason for the homes not being repaired is the owners can’t afford the cost to repair them. The people of Gandou, Haiti are an agricultural society that lives off the land. Their income is from selling their crops or crafts that they make. Their income does not generate enough money to feed their families three meals a day. That is why the houses remain in their damaged state. Repairing or rebuilding these homes will get these families out of the elements and improve their health and well-being.

ALISE PIERRE is the second family for this project. Notice most of the walls of the house are fabric.
SONIA PRUNIER has 8 children and has just one-room so we are adding another room during the repair of the old house.
