An Israeli organization has set up a provisional school in Haiti.

An Israeli delegation in Port-au-Prince from the Natan Israeli Coalition for International Humanitarian Aid set up the school in a large tent in coordination with the Haitian government and the Dominican Republic, Ynet reported Thursday.

Children searched through the rubble and found chalk boards, books and notebooks for the school, according to the Israeli news site.

The organization recruited teachers in the camps set up for homeless Haitians following the devastating Jan. 12 earthquake. The teachers were trained in how to deal with the children’s traumas.
