News and upcoming events from Believe inHaiti
May 2019
Believe in Haiti is devoted to keeping Haitian families together through love, education, and service, while empowering individuals to rise above their current poverty level.

Hope Central

The Hope Center is packed.  English classes run twice a week, sewing classes are in full swing, meals are prepared and served, tutoring sessions are happening, St. Rock is coming at night to read by the lights, and the community is gathering.  Hearing about all the wonderful programs and gatherings at the Hope Center is making our hearts happy.  Children and adults are walking though, reminiscing of all the great vision trips that have happened when they browse through photos that now decorate the walls.  You could walk through in the evening and see someone with a book, playing games, or perhaps a group playing cards with a comfortable place to sit. 

Sometimes making things happen in Haiti is not easy.  Cultural differences make for a more difficult process in seeing a vision come to life. 
But now, after struggle and frustration and a lot of hard work, we see, we hear, we experience and we can feel, through the voices of the people of St. Rock, the joy from this place of gathering.

It was worth every second, every tear, every drop of sweat.
The Hope Center has brought smiles, laughter, and community.  We love what the Hope Center is and what it will continue to become.  A place of purpose, unity, potential. 
A Place of Hope

St. Rock News

English Program
English classes have been running a few months now at the Hope Center.  Jeff (the instructor) is incredibly organized and experienced in teaching and works on skills from pronunciation to inflection to rhyming!  The boys in the class have been working hard and have now started talking with native English speakers through video-chat.  We were able to talk to them and were so impressed with the clarity, pronunciation, and vocabulary proficiency they already possess.  Their hard work is paying off and it was a true joy to practice and get to know some of these boys!

Sewing Program
Sewing classes began in April with our instructor Jeanine.  Jeannine is a long-time Haitian friend and, lucky for us, a master seamstress in Haiti who is excited to teach.  Jeannine is well experienced and certified to teach beginning-to-advanced sewing classes.  She teaches 3 times each week at the Hope Center.  The class is maxed out at 15 students, with a long waiting list of interested students!  Sewing students have learned their way around a singer treadle sewing machine. 
Students started with a small skirt for a baby and now have already made a skirt for themselves.  Their progress is swift and we have been very impressed with both teacher and students!
How to help this month

We currently have 20 students without a sponsor.  When you sponsor a child, whether for a primary education or as an English student, you are helping a Haitian qualify for greater opportunity.  A school sponsorship not only provides education, but a meal and a required uniform for the child. 
An English student sponsorship not only provides the opportunity to attend the class, but helps with the associated costs such as a local teacher's pay, applications to the program, equipment and books for the student, and an opportunity to thrive.
The Gift of Student Sponsorship
Your help will provide these students with access to better opportunities

Haiti Spotlight

Woodley (with brother Kenley) enjoys school just like any other young boy his age.  Unfortunately, due to illness or commitments on his father’s farm, he is unable to regularly attend school.  Woodley’s father works diligently on his farm to provide his son with food, clothing, and schooling, but there are scarce resources to be shared and these needs are often unmet. Since joining the Believe in Haiti feeding program and securing a school sponsorship, Woodley has been able to attend school on a more regular basis.  In addition, the tuition money his father once paid can now be used to secure the basic necessities of life for Woodley and his siblings.  Your continued support of Believe in Haiti will ensure that children like Woodley have an opportunity to attend school and eat a meal regularly, all the while remaining with their parents.
