Three New Classes

Illiteracy is a major problem in Haiti. According to the UN Development Fund, approximately one-half of all Haitians age 15 and older are illiterate. The quality of education is generally low, and 85 percent of schools are run by private entities that charge school fees that can be prohibitively expensive for low income families. More than 500,000 children and youth remain out of primary and secondary school. Hurricane Matthew significantly impacted access to education, damaging 1,633 out of 1,991 schools in the most hard-hit areas. So, when communities and Pastors like Pastor Jean Telcius answered the call, it is lifesaving to a section of Gros Mornes, Haiti.  September 24 Figaro 2nd section of Gros Mornes open 3 new classes and will be adding more classes every year.   This is a partnership of Ecole Chretienne de l’Espoir, Chasing Eden, and A New Haiti. May God bless this union for the good of the people of this part of Haiti
