You may be aware that teacher training is somewhat rare in Haiti. To legally teach in elementary school (up to 6th grade), a teacher does not need to have graduated from high school. A high school teacher needs only a high school diploma (but no teacher training). Although many teachers have some formal teacher training beyond high school, it would be rare to encounter a teacher that has a 4-year college degree.
Equipping the Next Generation of Christ-centered Leaders
This month, our 3,000 students in Haiti and the Dominican Republic will complete another school year. Most will pass along to the next grade. Unfortunately, many will not pass.
A note from one of our child sponsors.
As a ministry deeply embedded in Haiti, we are naturally affected by the culture. Every culture has its problems.
It is time to kick off the School Lunches 4 Haiti program for 2014! Get your church Vacation Bible School or Sunday School involved today. Everything you need for the program is on the webpage.
This March we held our semi-annual Board meeting. I continue to be impressed by the men and women who give leadership to this ministry and their desire to see things continue to move forward.
Over the past four years I have spent 14 weeks in Haiti with Mission Possible teams. Each year I am amazed by the work that is accomplished. Just like the five loaves and two fish that Jesus multiplied and fed the 5,000 (Luke 3:9), He multiplies our efforts, energy, skills, money, and time…
Be encouraged by this report from Tracy Rath, Mission Possible staff member:
At Mission Possible we want to “Equip the Next Generation of Christ
Centered Leaders.” Our schools in Haiti are some of the best in the area,
but we want to strive for excellence and make them even better.
