It is well documented that education is the best way to alleviate poverty. At Hope Christian Academy we value our teacher’s; they are the ones who affect the lives of 700 children every day. They educate, show love and know each child’s potential and how to help them achieve that potential. Please join with is praying for our 18 teachers. We soon hope to have their profiles up on our website. www.hopehousehaiti.com
If education is a priority for you perhaps you might consider sponsoring a teacher. A teacher earns $150 U.S. per month. Maybe this would be something you or a group of 10 or so friends / bible study group might consider committing to at £10/ $15 a month.
Sponsoring a teacher is different from sponsoring a child. By sponsoring a teacher its effect is felt not just by one child but by providing an education for a staggering 30-40 children each month! Do get in touch with us if this stirs your heart. Each school term you will receive a letter from the class teacher and a class photo yearly.
We currently have 14 teachers waiting to be sponsored, of which 1 is Kindergarten staff, 8 are secondary staff and 5 are Primary staff.
You can see below some of the photographs and bios of some of our teachers waiting to be sponsored.
