Education helps fight poverty and empowers people with the knowledge, skills and confidence to shape a better future.
Without the school, most of these young people would be on the street -- without work, without hope and dignity, and without community. In fact, only 20% of children in Haiti make it to the 7th grade. You may notice that they seem older than a typical 7th grader. The average age of a 7th grade student is 16yrs.
We are PROUD of these students and our dedicated staff at The Good Shepherd School and privileged to make a difference in their lives and community! THANK YOU for making it possible for these kids and hundreds of others to receive an education and have hope for their future.
