Respire Haiti Christian School
Children born into poverty in Haiti face a life of hunger, poor health and misery. The poorest families often have to place their child with another family as a domestic servant in hopes that their child will be fed and educated. In Gressier, Haiti Respire Christian School reaches out to the poorest families to provide the children with an education and healthy meals. Respire also reaches out to families with disabled children to educate them on how to care for their child and to see their child’s potential, not what they lack. Every child deserves an opportunity and with your help will have a chance to succeed.

Respire Haiti Christian School was established to encourage, educate and empower the most vulnerable children in Gressier, Haiti. They are the voice for orphans, disabled children and restaveks (child servants). Respire’s programs provide quality education from Kindergarten through 9th grade and daily meals to over 500 children. They also offer their students medical and dental services.
In developing countries like Haiti, superstition and voodoo traditions shun children with mental and physical disabilities. Respire Christian School is working to bridge that gap. They teach parents and the community that children with disabilities are not cursed and that they should be cared for like any other child. Families with disabled children receive physical and occupational services as well as training on how to care for their child’s special needs.
