Stories From Chadirac
Chadirac is one of the first communities The 410 Bridge partnered with in Haiti. Nestled on the side of a mountain with a gorgeous view of the coastline, people in Chadirac grow coffee and other crops. Chadirac has a very strong sense of community. The Leadership Council has a passion and desire to leave their community better for the next generation. One of their priorities is to improve education. They opened a school in a church building and started with 90 students, which quickly grew to about 400. In partnership with the 410 Bridge, they’ve built a new school building where over 600 students now attend school.
