For every 100 children in Haiti, 40 will never go to school. Of the 60 children who do, 42 will complete primary school, 20 will attend secondary school programs, and only 5 students will go on to graduate from high school. We’re working to change that! Quality education is vital in our effort to improve the economic structure of Haiti.
Combining the power of the gospel with a quality education can transform an individual and ultimately a nation. Students who have the opportunity to learn in a Christ-centered environment gain a critical foundation not only academically but also in their relationship with God. This increases individual progress and future success with exponential impact.
Our goal is to continue expanding opportunities to the 40% of children who lack the opportunity to receive an education. Mission of Hope will also work to train and empower local teachers within the Network of Hope with materials, updated curriculum and teaching seminars promoting best practices. Ultimately we hope to reach a network of over 100 schools.
The Creole phrase, Mwen Kapab, or “I can,” in English, is a Christ-centered curriculum developed by American and Haitian educators that is implemented in many of our schools. Mwen Kapab encourages critical-thinking skills while also educating students about the Christian faith. Our hope is that every student has the chance to experience life transformation through education.
