The school’s nine classrooms, computer lab, auditorium, cafeteria, library and basketball court cost US$326,000.
The Digicel Foundation has built 87 schools so far, at an average cost of about US$180,000. It does not pay operating costs and so is careful to pick communities that are committed to running the school.
At the inauguration, children in plaid uniforms sang a welcome song ending with a shout of: “Long live Haiti. Long live Digicel.”
