Hi. My name is Gladis. I am 17 years old and in sixth grade. I live with my parents and three siblings. I love going to school. This school benefits me so much because I have books and materials I need to help me study!
This year my parents weren’t able to pay for my schooling because we haven’t had crops for several years. Because of CAM’s Haiti-Sponsor-A-Child School Program, I can still go to school. My parents appreciate it very much.
I have over an hour to walk to school, and many times I don’t have anything to eat before I leave for school. They give me a meal at school and that really helps so I can study better.
Someday I would like to be a nurse. I don’t know how I will pay for it, but I trust God will make a way.
Gladis is one of approximately 8,000 students in Haiti who benefit from CAM’s Haiti-Sponsor-A-Child School Program. Thousands more have benefited over the years.
Rock Andre started attending a CAM-sponsored school in 1991. He recently wrote to us, “This school taught me discipline and the good attitude I needed to have a good career.” Today Rock Andre is a well-known economist in Haiti, teaches at a university, and has founded a center that helps people develop business skills.
Our goal for the Haiti-Sponsor-A-Child School Program is to help change the futures of Haitian children. We want to give them a chance in life in a country rampant with poverty, crime, witchcraft, and corruption. Unless the children learn to read and write, they will be greatly hindered in studying God’s Word and making a positive contribution to Haitian society.
Through Bible classes, chapel time, and Bible memorization, God’s Word is being instilled in precious young lives at CAM-sponsored schools. We have no control over what happens to the children after they leave school, but our prayer is that the investment of sponsors will help make a difference in the direction of their lives.
“For every step I make in life, I am reminded of the humble and solid beginning I had at Ecole Bon Samaritain de Potino,” Rock Andre writes. “I am grateful to Christian Aid Ministries for having supported the school.”
