Paix Bouche is a village in northern Dominica in the St. Andrew parish. It has a population of 577. The Paix Bouche Primary School (PBPS) serves the villages of Paix Bouche, Moore Park and Providence. Classes were held at the location under construction under tents and a room on the ground floor.

As of April 2018, classes were moved to the Resource Centre in Paix Bouche. Roof restoration work is being done by our partner, All Hands All Hearts. They received roofing materials consisting of lumber; corrugated galvanized metal roofing sheets (CGI); hurricane straps and ties; galvanized roofing screws and fasteners to cover a roofing area of approximately 2440 square feet.
