Good Samaritans School

LBS front

The Good Samaritans (Les Bons Samaritains) is a school founded to serve the economically and socially deprived children and adults of Haiti. It specifically targets the poorest of Haiti's poor-- those children who most desperately need a chance. The goal of the Good Samaritans School is to form a new generation of Haitians who are well-equipped to become responsible future leaders of the country.

The Good Samaritans opened its wrought iron gate July 7th, 2001 with a dedication ceremony and benediction by His Eminence, William Cardinal Keeler, Archbishop Emeritus of Baltimore. Contributions from Food for the Poor and private donors funded the construction of the 3-story building, directed by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny.

As of September 2015, the Patricia Chairs preschool opened nearby to welcome three and four year olds for a 2 year program before joining the kindergarten housed in the Good Samaritans school building pictured above. Students are given breakfast on arrival and a substantial meal following classes and tuition-free quality education through the 6th grade. In addition, all of the children receive preventative medical, dental, and eye care annually.
