By supporting Christ-centered education, we are raising up an empowered, God-honoring generation, equipping them to escape the cycle of poverty that has plagued their families for generations. These educated children and young adults can provide for themselves with dignity. The process begins with reading, writing and arithmetic — basic academic skills. Many poor children would never obtain an education without outside help, so we remain committed to promoting and funding Christian education on their behalf.
The support from our donors in 2015 funded scholarships, salaries and other critical components of our partners’ educational outreaches. One of those outreaches, the MEBSH Literacy Centers, is specifically geared toward the empowerment of Haitian restaveks (child domestic servants) and children at risk of becoming restaveks. We also helped the Divine Shelter Schools, an important network of Christian schools, give poor children access to education.
