Destroyed for Lack of Knowledge
The literacy rate in Haiti is only 48 percent, while one third of girls over six-years old never go to school, and 60 percent of children abandon school before sixth grade. This makes education one of the critical and key parts of God’s Vision for Haiti’s ministry.
In partnership with Les Cayes’ and surrounding area churches, our aim is to establish a K-12 Christian school to educate children from foster homes, non-foster homes and orphanages. Enrollment preference will be given to children of foster homes, church families and orphanages. Tuition will be assessed on a sliding scale based on ability to pay.
The school will be built on property presently owned by God’s Vision for Haiti—see projects page for an overview of the master plan for the school, transitional foster-care home, and work-skill center.
