Mission-Haiti sees education as the key to creating young Christian leaders. With help of supporters we are able to influence and foster growth in the schools surrounding Ti Rivyè. Operating one French/English immersion school, six traditional Haitian schools, and partnering with many other schools in the area, education is the biggest arm of our ministry.
Choosing a Student to Sponsor
Your sponsorship of a child can be the difference between them spending their day doing chores or attending school and bettering their education. The sponsorship program is a huge part of what we do at Mission-Haiti, and is our largest ministry to this area of Haiti. If you are compelled to sponsor a student, you can choose from students attending the Jean Alexis Kuislin Christian Academy, a christian school built by Mission-Haiti, or students attending one of our many Partner Schools. We encourage you to further explore the Christian Academy and our Partner Schools. There you will also find a list of students still waiting to go to school. We also provide answers to many questions in our Sponsorship FAQ.
