The school year in Haiti is winding down and soon the kids will be taking tests to see if they can continue to the next grade. If they pass they will move on, but if they fail, they will repeat that same grade. This would be sad for them, but probably for the best, so that they are properly equipped to take on the higher grades. The High School grades of Haiti’s education system have especially high standards for passing.
Currently our school in Nan wo goes through the 9th grade, and then the young people will have the opportunity to move on to another school that will provide the last three years of the equivalent to our high school. We would love for our school to grow and include these classes, but it becomes increasingly expensive to bring in more teachers at this level.
Pray with us that we would have wisdom concerning this vision to expand our Nan wo school. The Lord would have to vastly increase sponsorship and giving to make that possible. Currently about one in six students is sponsored in Nan wo.
