the Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina,
St. Johns supports the mission at Cange, Haiti. The successes
of this mission include a new church, school, medical complex and a childrens
pavilion. Read our diocese's plan

One of our projects in Haiti is a school in the village of Chapoteau, not far from Cange. Several Episcopal Churches, known as Chapoteau Partners, are fundraising to build and operate a new school in Chapoteau. The new school building has been completed. The old school building is being renovated into an administrative wing. Find out more about Chapoteau from our brochure.
