As we look back at the 2016-17 school year, we are humbled and amazed by the work God invited us to complete. Three words summarize our year: progress, provision, and preparation.
The Prodigy Building
Classroom space at our first school campus in Haiti tripled. The Prodigy Building you funded now towers over our first building and represents a new wave of change that is coming to our students and the community we serve.
Our fundraising goal was $210,000, but God had something else in mind. 265 donors invested $288,330 into our work. That equates to 60% growth over the previous fiscal year. Talk about exceeding expectations! Thanks to your generosity, hope will multiply this school year as we purchase land for our second school in Haiti.
Every dollar and hour invested tells a story of transformation
Student of the Year
Last year, Evensky was enrolled in our second grade class after a year of participating in our work study program. As a student, God provided him with the tutoring and motivation he needed to catch up to his classmates and be one of the most likable and improved students of the year.
Staff Member of the Year
God provided our administrative office with Yvrose, who has a passion for organization and a heart that beats passionately for our students. Since she’s joined our staff, the culture and atmosphere of our front office has become an even more welcoming place for students.
Volunteer of the Year
Blake generously invested time and resource to go on three serving trips throughout the year to oversee construction of the Prodigy Building. Because of the leadership God provided through Blake, our students are now using this brand new space.
While we celebrate the completion of the Prodigy Building, the true celebration will come as we witness the life-change and transformation that will happen within its walls.
During the 2017-18 school year, our influence is growing in the following ways:
We're serving 126 primary and kindergarten students, 9 work study students, and 16 adults through our literacy program.
Thank you to our partners, donors, prayer warriors, and volunteers. Without you, hope through education doesn't happen!
