Education gives children the ability to change
Sandwiched between the ocean and the mountains lies the impoverished city of Raboto. Pigs, goats and children forage through the garbage strewn beaches for food. Situated in the middle of this destitute neighborhood is a school for nearly 300 of the neighborhood children.
Founder Pastor Genada opened this primary school promising an education and a hot meal each day. This is something that their parents never dreamed of. Many of the children are restaveks (domestic servants) living in homes of other families because their parents cannot afford to raise them. Going to school and getting a nutritious meal is a dream come true for these children.
Every day brings new challenges to the school but few are as great as coming up with the funds needed to renew their five-year lease. The full amount was due June 1, 2018. Other than prayer, Pastor Grenada had no idea how he could come up with the $1,900 he needed to keep his school open. This amount is a king’s ransom in Haiti.
In April of 2018, All Children spent a day with the children in their classrooms. The children are grateful for every day that they are able to come to school. They also get a nutritious lunch that they could not count on getting at home. This is still possible thanks to All Children for funding the five-year lease.
With your help even more children will be able to welcome a new day filled with possibilities. Dreams do come true.
