Oh How We’ve Grown: Time for New Uniforms

It’s time for us to start making uniforms again!

During the summer, we start to prepare for the next school year, and that includes making more uniforms! Our uniforms have changed a lot since The Joseph School started. We went from a simple white polo and khakis to a more functional, full khaki uniform for all our students. We provide shirts, skirts, shorts, and new shoes and socks to all of our students.

Our 2015 Uniforms / Our Current Uniforms

As some of you may know, we transitioned last year to having our uniforms entirely made in Haiti! Not only does that reduce costs of overseas shipping, but it also creates well-paying jobs in our community for Haitians. Most Haitians live on less than two dollars a day, so providing uniforms not only makes education much more accessible for families, but hiring Haitians to make uniforms is an opportunity to give back to the community.

We want to thank our generous sponsors who have quite literally put the clothes on our students’s backs, and who have made it possible for us to provide uniforms! However, we are approaching the end of the school year, and are preparing to welcome a new class of 33 students (who do not have sponsors). Having new students and students who are growing means we are in need of more uniforms!
