Building Hope in Haiti

RAISING THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS

 

“BECAUSE OF GOD, I’M STILL GOING TO SCHOOL.”

Like many children her age, Chrislaine knew she would never finish seventh grade.

 

When Chrislaine was 14 years old, her mother passed away, leaving her father struggling to provide for his seven children. Paying for education was impossible.

Thankfully, because of people like you, Chrislaine’s story doesn’t end there.

She applied to Lifesong Christian School, was accepted, and moved into the Student Life Homes on campus. Now—at age 17—she’s in the 9th grade and will graduate in a few years.

And even better, she has accepted Jesus and been baptized.

“Because of God I’m still living and going to school. I thank God for what He has done for me.”

 

CURRENT NEEDS TO CONTINUE REACHING CHILDREN IN Haiti INCLUDE:

 

$35,000 – Classroom for 24 Students
$145,000 – 12th & 13th Grade Classroom
$125,000 each – Student Residence (2 needed)

 

TOTAL NEED $430,000

WHY IT TRULY MATTERS.

Homelessness, unemployment, and malnutrition are steep, ongoing challenges in Haiti that have created an alarmingly high level of poverty and a low level of education in the country. Fewer than 3 out of 10 children in Haiti receive an education, and most children live under poverty’s oppression.

Few have knowledge of the Gospel.

For the students who attend Lifesong Christian School, nutritious meals and a good education are provided at no cost—giving them the hope of a future. And every student is taught the Gospel.

“Haiti is a country where the devil is working, but God is working at the same time. Students who didn’t know Christ are coming to know Him.” —Pastor Octavien, Lifesong Christian School pastor and houseparent

 

LIFESONG CHRISTIAN SCHOOL IS IN ITS SECOND YEAR

In 2017, after years of prayer, fundraising, and construction, 103 students entered Lifesong Christian School for its first term.

This year, 135 students attend high school, and over 800 children are served through the ministry.

Next year, with your help, we hope to reach even more.

For that to happen, it is critical that we have the building space to teach and care for these children.

Right now in Haiti, we have a large need to expand the ministry through classrooms and student residences by the end of December.

This Christmas, would you give to help students like Chrislaine? Would you help build hope for students in need? Every gift joins where God is working—sharing the Good News with children in Haiti that they, too, are sons and daughters.
