THE JOY OF COMING BACK TO SCHOOL
August 10th was the beginning of a new journey as the schools re-opened to complete the 2019-2020 academic year. Over the past couple of years, the political unrest and more recently COVID-19 have hindered the education system in Haiti.
All the kids that normally would be in school, receiving a safe eduction and a meal for the day have been home for a long time. This has been a challenge for the parents and the kids, and they are simply tired. While schools were closed it was very hard for parents to feed their children, which is one of the reasons that both the kids and parents are so happy that the schools have reopened! Children can wake up each day with motivation because they have something to look forward to. Every kid needs something to look forward to and for this season it’s going to school, learning, seeing their friends, and receiving a meal.
Your generous support is a big plus in the life of those kids. Many of them are orphans and others that have parents might not have the means to support them financially. We ask for prayers so that the children may finish their term for the 2019-2020 academic year and prayers to start the new academic year soon. Pray also for our politicians who have no concrete plans for the children to learn something that will help them have a better future.
