Our Christian schools in Hinche and the surrounding remote villages have been very successful and a blessing to the students in the Central Plateau. Before we started this ministry there were very few schools available to the thousands of children living in the villages surrounding Hinche. Haiti Endowment is happy to report that we now have thirteen thriving schools, with 3,700 children attending five days per week. More new students are added on a regular basis.
This program has flourished under the wonderful direction of Marie Berson. She oversees the entire school network and teacher training. Classes are provided for children from 1st to 6th grades. The students learn the basic reading, writing and math. In addition, they are taught a Christian perspective of history and God’s redemptive plan. Each school year runs for nine months, five days a week. All of the 3,700 school students receive a daily hot meal, along with a 3-person portion to take home daily. Our feeding program is currently providing approximately 25 tons of food to our schools monthly, serving thousands of meals a day to our students.
Haiti Endowment believes that our school program is an essential part of transforming the lives of these students. We believe that successful education at any level involves both inspiration and instruction. Our goal is to assist in the spiritual and educational development of these struggling people. Through proper Biblical integration, teaching and training, they are introduced and guided into the loving arms of a God who cares for them.
The need for student supplies, teaching tools and classroom supplies is enormous. The government of Haiti supplies very little for the education for the people of Central Haiti. In June 2010, HEF hosted our first Teacher’s Conference on the compound. We had approximately 80 teachers attend the 3-day training-teacher’s conference.
Your help through donations is appreciated to assist in the education and advancement to thousands of Haitian children.
