Why Grade Sponsorship?
By joining 12 sponsors to a grade, Lemuel is able to meet the unique educational need on the Plateau without undermining self-respect or creating unhealthy dependence.
Here’s how it works …
1. You help educate a generation …
Children are educated, meals are provided, hope is born, faith is founded
2. … which impacts the community …
Community pride, economic benefit, hope flourishes, families stay together
3. … and in turn changes lives
Encourages teachers, employment helps family, hope is shared, released to teach with love
Now that’s a return!

What is EML?
Ecole Mixte Lemuel, or EML, is Lemuel’s kindergarten and elementary school. It is an extension of the Lemuel ministries. Lemuel is a faith-based organization that works in Haiti’s most desolate and neglected area: the Northwest. Within this context, Lemuel seeks to impact and improve lives by addressing the full breadth of poverty and investing in people as whole beings. Through EML, Lemuel is striving to improve education for the marginalized children of Grand Diable and surrounding communities to a level comparable with the more exclusive schools in Haiti.
