A ministry to provide a Christian education for children in Haiti was begun by forming an alliance of four existing schools on the island of La Gonave, Haiti. In October of 2011 a new High School was opened to add a fifth school for a total of 700 students. Two of the elementary schools are held in churches, while the other elementary school and the new high school share a rented building. The Strategy for this organization is to provide a method of improving the quality of education, provide for the Christian development of students, also provide a basis for funding opportunities for the schools from outside and to work to provide a sustainable future for graduates.

Provide a Quality Education
There is a real need for schools to support one another by comparing results, curriculum, providing standards, and teacher training, then develop ways to prepare students in career focused training.
In Haiti there is little access to public education since there are fees to go to public schools.The well off are able to afford it but the poor are unable to pay those fees. Many private schools have been formed as a result, mostly in churches. This is a great opportunity to influence the students for faith and discipleship in Christ. The organization will work together to provide ways to involve both teachers and students in spiritual development.
Since the focus is to provide education to students whose families cannot afford to send them to school, Partners International Canada will seek to raise support for this ministry. This will assist the schools in paying for teachers who are not receiving consistent payment and also help to improve facilities and provide operating capital.
Provide a Sustainable Future
Long term objectives would be to provide career-specific training that would prepare students for employment and a future eventually releasing them from poverty.
