Primary school “Food for the poor”, Haiti.

This project of the primary school in Haiti was realized thanks to the international humanitarian initiative “Food for the poor”, held in 2010 after a strong earthquake. The structure, consisting of two floors, is composed of six classes, an administrative office and a canteen at the first floor. On the second floor there are other six classes, a library with a computer lab and a music room. Each classroom can accommodate up to 40 students.
