Meet a Habitat Family: Lavia and Keysha


This is one of the heartwarming stories that keep us going! Keysha, 11, and her mother Lavia, 42, lost their homes during the earthquake of 2018. They have been living in their new home built by Habitat Haiti since December 2019. Lavia was happy to talk to us about school, which just reopened following a shutdown due to COVID-19. She’s happy to be going back to school to see all her friends and continue to learn new things; one of her favorite things to learn is writing. She also showcased her colorful chalk writings on the wall, one of which praised her mother as “a great woman.” She explained that her mother works hard as a maid at the mayor’s office to provide for them and send her to school so she could have a better life, and that makes her a great woman!
