Guens is living with his mother because his father passed away some time ago, which has been very difficult for the family. Guens’ mother does not have an education so it is difficult for her to find work. The house where they stay is rented and they cannot afford to buy clothes and school materials. Guens is excited to learn new things! He needs an education so that he can find a good job one day. By sponsoring Guens, you can help provide him with nutritious food, a good education, medical care, and teaching from the Word of God! Thank you for making an impact on Guens’ future for Christ!
Baptist Evangelical School of Grande Bassin
The Baptist Evangelical School of Grand Bassin shines the light of Christ in a spiritually dark environment. The center is part of a local church where many of its teachers are members of the church. The center meets one of the biggest needs in Haiti by covering the costs of education, including school supplies, fees, uniforms and shoes. Medical care is also available to children in need. Staff teach the Bible, encourage the children to attend church, and give opportunities for them to accept Christ.
Haiti is a mountainous nation in the Caribbean that shares a border with the Dominican Republic. Haiti is prone to droughts, floods, and hurricanes. The majority religion is Christianity, and over half of the population professes to be Catholic. Voodoo is also practiced by some as well. Unemployment is rampant throughout Haiti with little access to quality jobs. Families also struggle with alcoholism, malnutrition, and insufficient medical care. Because of the extreme poverty, parents struggle to pay for their children’s school fees and usually are not educated themselves.
