Blog Relocation & Other News

We’ve been so busy at ULC that we haven’t put much energy into the blog.  Hopefully we’ll do so in the next few months, but please note that we will be blogging directly from our website from now on, not on WordPress.  We have loved WordPress and highly encourage people interested in blogging to sign up for a free account, but our website has blogging capabilities and it was decided that we should concentrate our efforts on the website rather than putting time into formatting posts twice, once for the site and once for WordPress.

Enjoying story time! We started with about 20 kids and ended up with 78! Luckily, we had just enough snacks and toothbrushes/paste (related to the story) for each child!

As we transition, we will post short notices on WordPress to let our subscribers know we’ve posted.  That is one thing the website doesn’t allow for, subscribers to the blog.  We will, however, be starting a newsletter, so if you’d like to be added to the list, please go to the website and sign up.  The sign-up is located at the very bottom of each page of the website.

This cutie came to check out what we were doing at the new ULC-Ferrier site. We were inspecting it to determine what renovations need to be done.

Also, please “like” us on Facebook as we update it frequently and have posted hundreds of pictures.  We can be found at www.facebook.com/universallearningcentre

Our recent trip to Haiti is documented on Facebook already.  We had many successes, including getting renovations started on our 2nd site (Ouanaminthe) and our 3rd site (Ferrier).  While there, we were offered a beautiful space in Cap-Haitien, so that will likely be library/learning center #4.   We have also opened up discussions about collaborating with JP HRO in Port-au-Prince, and were received by the Minister of the Diaspora, who would like to see a library/learning center in his hometown of Mirebalais.  There is SO much going on in ULC right now!  We hope you will log onto Facebook or sign up for our newsletter so you don’t miss any details.

Watching from next door as we inspected the new ULC-Ouanaminthe site!

Hope you enjoyed the pictures!  See the actual sites on our Facebook page!
