Covenant Day students are using fish and plants within agricultural engineering to create sustainable food sources and jobs in Haiti. With more than 80 percent of Haitians living below the poverty line, Covenant Day desires to respond to a growing need with a long-term, sustainable solution. Through Restore 525, a student-led initiative, students are building off the research and groundwork from Covenant Day's beta project, This Green Fish. Restore 525 will be sending its first team to Haiti in June.
ContainIt is continuing to "think inside the box" with its newest project: a coffee house container. The students wanted to go beyond just building functional living spaces on the reservation. They wanted to help promote sustainability and create jobs. The transformed coffee house container was delivered to the reservation earlier this month.
Covenant Day is embarking on a new sustainability initiative to help spread the Gospel. A group of middle school students are teaming together to create an e-commerce website so that individuals around the world can have access to the unique gifts and crafts at the JAARS gift shop. Many of these items are made by artisans around the world who live in communities that are just now receiving the Gospel in their own language. Click the graphic to learn more about this project.
