We were given the amazing opportunity to open a school for children that don’t attend school in Tabarre Haiti. There are probably hundreds of children in our neighborhood who due to poverty and family circumstances do not attend school. School is not free in Haiti. Parents have to pay a registration fee, tuition, books, supplies, food and so much more. However, if the parents are not able to pay, the child does not go to school. Additionally, these expenses do not always guarantee a quality education. When we agreed to open our teaching to twenty children, eighty five showed up. We now have a full fledged school. These children need to be sponsored; all funds collected will go to pay teachers, feed the children lunch each day and will help provide them an education opportunity they would not otherwise have. Please consider helping change the life of a child.
We have taken on more students this year.
We are bringing 28 children from another Orphanage which does not have the funds to send there children to school. Two of the children are hearing and speech impaired and we will be transporting them to another school that specializes in their problems. We will be providing transportation from an area about 30 minutes from here. They will be joining us in the fall.
We have also partnered with another school in the near area which is extremely poor and the Pastor over the school has teachers who have gone unpaid for a period of time and we are adding his children here to give him a little help to move forward. We have helped him in the past but are trying to assist a little more.
