Earthquake-resistant classrooms

Three years after the earthquake, 900 children were able to attend class in their new, earthquake and hurricane-resistant building in Cité Soleil, the biggest shantytown of Port au Prince. Many of the children's fathers participated in the construction of the new building. This school is supported by Caritas Austria and Secours Catholique (Caritas France).
