Croix Hilaire Bacefop Elementary School
The Croix Hilaire Bacefop School serves about 300 children from kindergarten to 6th grade. This school also includes 14 teachers and caregivers who teach, nurse, and nurture the children. The school currently uses city water, a source run through underground systems in Croix Hilaire which has been tested as contaminated. Principal Duverssaint spoke with the Poured Out team, communicating elation over the ability to provide clean water for the children he and his staff love so dearly. The children of Croix Hilaire Bacefop School will also be able to bring buckets to school to be filled up and brought home to their families.

The Croix Hilaire system was re-located to a new building on the school’s campus in October of 2012. The new water-house is producing over 1,600 gallons of water each day! The community has free access to the water at least 10 hours each week, and students at the school are drinking clean water every day. The principal has continued his micro-business (see video below) and is now selling both water and juice that he creates in his water-house to support the school!
