Manitoba musicians will play a benefit concert to help students in Haiti get access to better education through online learning, in an event organized by École haitienne sans Frontières / Haitian Schools Without Borders. The concert will be held June 14, 2013 at 8 p.m. at Jean-Paul Aubry Hall, Centre Culturel Franco-Manitobain (CCFM), 340 Provencher Boulevard, Winnipeg. A dance will follow at 10 p.m. Tickets for the concert are available online at: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/359131, or can be purchased by phone at: 1-800-838-3006.
Artists performing at the event will include Daniel ROA, Marie-Josée Clément, Jane Enkin, and Trésor Namwira. A silent auction for a Haitian painting, and other significant prizes, will also be part of the evening.
“Proceeds from the event will help put more classes online, train more teachers, and make technology (laptops, tablets etc.) more accessible to Haitian students registered with the school,” says Bathélemy Bolivar, founder of Haitian Schools Without Borders. The organization provides online classes for students and online resources for teachers to support the Haitian school system using standard teaching practices while implementing the local curriculum.
Haitian Schools Without Borders offers free access to quality education for high-school students in Haiti whose schools, and in some cases their teachers, perished in the devastating earthquake that hit the county three years ago.
