Maison de l’Avenir Jacqueline Lessard (MAJL) is a home for underprivileged children in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti.
Founded by Jacqueline Lessard, a woman from the Saguenay region whose appeal after the January 2010 earthquake touched many, Maison de l’Avenir Jacqueline Lessard is currently home to 52 children..
Maison de l’Avenir Jacqueline-Lessard has three main buildings: the school, the dormitories, and a building that houses the kitchen, cafeteria and library.
The Laferté-Roy school teaches first to fourth grade to the children at Maison de l’Avenir Jacqueline-Lessard and in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti. The school currently has 250 students.
The school is increasingly popular within the community, which is why several projects are planned, including expanding the cafeteria, building a children’s garden and building new classrooms to be able to teach up to sixth grade.
Both MAJL and the school are managed by the Filles de Marie-Reine Immaculée (FMRI), an Indigenous religious community.
