Hope For La Gonave Schools Sponsorship
The Hope for La Gonave schools sponsorship “vision” began with our first sponsorship of a school in the remote village of Plenn Mapou in 2007. We determined to collectively fund this need as a family. As we made our initial visit to churches, it became clear that there were 3 other villages that were also in dire need of education for the children who live there. As we fast forward to 2016, there are now 4 elementary schools at Plenn Mapou, Bwa Pen, La Pierre, and Gran Lagon, and 1 middle school at Nan Cafe.
Our goal is to provide a quality Christian education which will equip the children in these remote areas to be productive individuals in their homes, churches and communities and that through this ministry they will learn God’s Word as part of a rigorous curriculum which will assure that they will no longer be “hopeless” but will know that the Lord has “plans for their welfare and not for calamity…to give them a future and a hope” as promised in the Book of Jeremiah. We know there is hope for LaGonave and Haiti.
