Pageste Christian Schools

Pageste, pronounced Pä-jest, is a small village about mile north of the Artibonite River from the city of Mirebalais. People travel to the village either by swimming across the river or by being ferried across in a handmade wooden boat. Once children complete elementary school, they attend a secondary school in the nearby city of Mirebalais.
