Thomassin Campus


The Thomassin Campus is located in the upper part of the village of Thomassin, a small town just up the mountain from Petion-Ville (7km south of Port-au-Prince). First time visitors should contact us for specific (and somewhat complicated) directions to the campus.

Petionville Educational Center


The Petionville Educational Center is located on the campus of our partner, SOPUDEP, Ave Panamericaine, angle rue Jean Augustin et Emeric #77 directly in front of Save the Children.

The nearest taptap routes include Delmas 60 and Boudon.

Visitors traveling to the campus from Delmas should descend Delmas 60, take the first left. then turn right after 50 feet, and continue up the hill. At the top of the hill you will pass Save the Children and SOPUDEP is located on your right. Visitors traveling to SOPUDEP from the center of Petionville should go down Boudon/Pan American Highway until the first right before the turn off for Hotel Montana (this street is called rue Jean Augustin but there is no street sign). Make a sharp right turn onto this street and go up the hill, following it around a left turn bend to the intersection. SOPUDEP will be across the street from you.
