One of the big problems we face here on the Plateau is the incredibly low standard of education. In Port-au-Prince we can focus on strictly non-scholastic formation and discipleship knowing that our students are getting quality educations at the schools they attend. On the Plateau, however, the schools leave a gaping hole in the area of scholastic formation. If we hope to make a difference in this area we must find a way to ensure a quality education for at least some of those who will be the area’s future leaders. For this reason today the following students left to go to Port-au-Prince to continue their schooling there.
They will live in the Lemuel House under the care of Leon Cameus and his wife and will go to school at a Christian school only about a 5 minute walk away. Every night Leon has devotions with the students and they rotate who is responsible to lead them. We have already seen the positive impact of these times in Mezilien who was there last year.
It was hard to see them go and they will all be greatly missed, but their parents have chosen to send them because they know this is the best thing for them long-term.
The cost to send each of these students to Port-au-Prince is $100 a month on top of their school tuition of approximately $50 a month (including entrance fee). Below I have marked those students who are already being sponsored. If you are interested in sponsoring one of these students, even in part, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
