The Haiti School Building Project was born in March 2011 by Toronto’s most at risk population. The project was implemented to build their self esteem and give then a sense of purpose as they give back and help others. The primary goal of the Haiti School Building Project is to fund, construct and establish a safe, well quipped school in Canaan, so the children living there will have the opportunity to learn and gown, just as our students do here in Toronto.
Serena Buffalino started taking Toronto’s most at risk youth and pairing them up with the most at risk youth in the world, Haiti, and through education and learning creating a miracle. Through in class programming and leadership skills The Haiti School Building Project gives youth the opportunity to attend a safe school building and receive an adequate education regardless of their life circumstances and or location on the globe. Their primary goal is to empower youth both locally and globally by showing them they have the potential to bring about great change in their lives and the world around them.
