"Life would have been different if it wasn’t for school"


Meet André. He just turned 19 years old this past April, and is a graduate from the School of Hope on the Mission of Hope campus in Titanyen, Haiti where he has attended school since he was in the fourth grade.

He shared the joy of his graduation day with his mom and half siblings. His father has passed away, so the stresses of providing for his family weigh heavily on him.

Rather than hear from us, we figured we’d let André tell you himself what school means for him.

quote line

Thanks to my sponsor, I received a quality education allowing me to dream and to become the man God created me to be. So many other young boys and girls, living in the area where I live, are pulled into using drugs, prostituting themselves, or joining gangs.

If I had not gone to the School of Hope, I would not have met my four best friends in school which are Romano, Mendell, Manassé, and Monley. They all come from Christian families, and meeting them really changed my life. They inspire me to know more about Jesus and the Bible, and they have helped me become a different person from what I was before. I used to behave very badly in school, and gave problems to my teachers while also having troubles with other kids. Today, even the teachers say I am a different person. I live for Jesus, and I am a musician in my church just like my four best friends.

I now attend the Technical School at Mission of Hope, where I am learning Auto Mechanics. I have big dreams, and I am praying God will provide the means for me to achieve them all!

André’s face lit up when we asked him about what school means to him. When he shared about kids just like him—in his own community—who were easily pulled into really dark things, he was burdened.

A Christ-centered education truly changes futures for kids. It changes the choices they make today, because they actually believe and have hope for a bright future that God has planned for them.

The reality is that we have thousands of kids in our schools who are attending every day, but they do not have a sponsor. We are committed to finding a sponsor for them—just like André had a sponsor. Someone who encourages them through letters, prays for them, and commits monthly or annually to help offset the cost of school so that kids can attend.

Would you prayerfully consider sponsoring a child in Haiti? It’s $35 per month, or $420 per year. It’s an investment into the life of a child, his or her teacher, family, and community.
