From 1946 to 2010, the Toirac building was the flagship building on our campus. Named after Florentino Toirac, the founder of the school that would later become STEP, it was beautifully designed and carefully constructed. For 64 years it housed both classrooms and offices for the administration.



But after terror struck in the form of an earthquake on January 12, 2010, the building sustained significant damage and parts of it came tumbling to the ground – killing one student in the process.





After much prayer and many discussions, a design for a permanent replacement was developed. Finally, 6 years after the earthquake struck, in early 2016 ground was broken on a new Academic Building that would hold nine classrooms and 24 offices, bringing both students and the administration back together in the same building again.





















In January 2017, construction began on Phase 2 of the project which includes finishing the exterior and completing all interior work (plumbing, electrical, tiling, windows, doors, etc) to make things move-in ready.

As of early August 2017, the building is projected to be ready to move in by the middle of the month. However, funds are still needed to install a computer network, fully furnish the building and to finish constructing a retaining wall that will protect the building from the hill behind it.

We thank you for continuing to pray for the realization of these projects to the glory of God.

If you would like to partner with us to help get this building finished and ready to use, click here: stephaiti.net/give.

Redevelopment of the
Parc du Champ-de-Mars



The Champ-de-Mars is a heritage site at the centre of Port-au-Prince that has been reworked more than once during the last century. Lemay was asked to prepare a redevelopment plan highlighting specific moments in its past. The proposed concept aimed to strengthen the three major functions already present (recreational, festive and commemorative) and illustrate the concept of renewal after the 2010 earthquake.


The Champ-de-Mars rehabilitation design and execution intended to unify the public squares of which it was composed, to make it uniquely recognizable as a public place located in the heart of the national capital.

Also part of the Champ-de‑Mars master plan, Lemay redesigned the Occide Jeanty Kiosk, a cultural and artistic venue re-inaugurated in 2015. Inspired by Haitian traditions and artistic expression, and named for noted Haitian musician Occide Jeanty, the concept included a new, 4,000-seat amphitheatre with esplanade, retail outlets, landscaping and street furniture. Lemay was mandated to oversee the site supervision for work completed by a Haitian construction company.

Repaving Route Nationale # 7

this year 2015. I understood that this completion was one of the priority objectives of the current administration and that it would be completed. The authorities concerned had given assurances. Two successive finance ministers have repeatedly stated that the resources that the Haitian state must provide to complete the road would be available from Petrocaribe funds. I was also convinced that IDB and CIDA, which provided the bulk of the initial funding, would not leave unfinished an infrastructure to which their name will remain attached, which is so important to the Grand Anselais and the country. Yet, by the time these lines are written, the prospects of completing this route appear rather uncertain.

This Monday morning, Jean-Douby Florville, 13, wants to take all his time to eat and review his homework before going to school. The eldest son of a family of four, Jean-Douby crosses the eight-kilometer link between the village of Labadie and downtown Cap Haitien, where are the good schools of the region and his mother's hardware store. Before, the journey took 90 minutes on a dusty road, since the rehabilitation of the road, it takes only 30 minutes to go door to door.

"Before, there were a lot of accidents on the road because the passage was too narrow in some places. In the rainy season, it was difficult for us to go to school because even motorcycles could not circulate, "recalls Jean-Douby.

This road was inaugurated in February 2018 by the President of the Republic Jovenel Moise accompanied by the Prime Minister of the Bahamas to Haiti in the framework of the CARICOM summit and the World Bank country director, Anabela Abreu. In his speech, the President of the Republic welcomed this achievement, fruit of the good cooperation between the World Bank and the Haitian government. "We want to congratulate the World Bank for financing this work at the request of the Government of Haiti. "

A road to maintain resilience

Residents living in communities along this axis are unanimous in recognizing that since the start of the works, they no longer feel threatened by the rains, often causing floods. Drainage and drainage work has been undertaken and retaining walls have also been constructed to prevent landslides.

"Now I feel proud to live in the locality. I feel like I live in Pétion-ville or the other accessible areas of Port-au-Prince. Despite the fact that our communal section generates a lot of money thanks to the tourists who come to Labadie, we were a little isolated and marginalized, especially during the rain, "said Anthony Saint Preux, a resident present during the opening of the road .

The World Bank is supporting the Government's integrated approach to the development of this dynamic region of the Far North, and this investment is part of a broad, integrated program of the World Bank Group to support sustainable mobility for all.

"It all starts with a road," says Anabela Abreu, Country Director of the World Bank. "A road is a window of opportunity that opens up and facilitates the movement of people, products and services. The rehabilitation of this road shows how much this type of infrastructure can bring transformations in the economy and the life of the inhabitants of Cap Haitien ".

The construction of this road is a first step to facilitate better connectivity within Greater Cap Haitian, promote economic exchanges and development of the tourism sector.

I want to say something here.

Just last night, I watched a report by a couple of American guys, including a US-Haitian dude to translate local Creole and all, and felt pretty upset.

The report mostly focused on the current Dominican vs Haitian divide, but there was some hint at local history too.

Fact is the ancient French racist settlers literally butchered much of the landscape as they mistreated their slaves, by growing too few types of crops all over the Haitian territory.
I was very astonished to see how they could witness the wrong effects of so called intensive agriculture so early over there.
It ruined their soil fertility to some very wide extent.

However, the landscape and the soil could probably be fixed and recover with some help from the international community.
The French should pay taxes for this cause.
It's pretty clear that the Haitians have been a martyred people, so we owe them an enormous debt. Not the other way round.
So does the US, for having mistreated their republic in the past as well, for mere racist reasons.

^ Is this an all-girl school? Wait, where are boys to dance with girls?
Haha. Bah, it's just my republican secular culture...

The problem is obviously that the local state can't really afford any complete and decent education system yet.

So I guess this is still some fair initiative. I just hope locals won't forget about their Fr republican heritage. Having regular, secular teachers instead of nuns is just as fine, nothing wrong.
Also, schools should host both genders. Even Catholic schools do so over here in France, so boys and girls can learn how to live together and respect one another as soon as possible.

I wonder why they would segregate boys from girls over there.
