HAITI CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS - HAITI
Haiti Christian Schools sees education as the cornerstone of sustainable development. Each additional year of education a child receives makes a big difference to their future livelihood. The schools provide quality education, exceptional training for teachers, and nutrition for the students. HCS provides vocational training for students as well. Vocational training bridges the gap between formal instruction and the working world. Vocations offered include: ceramic tiling, tailoring, and leather and canvas work. Basic business skills are a part of the vocational training. There are opportunities for students to work as apprentices within the local community. We love this organization because it is intentional about avoiding the pitfalls of traditional aid. They are developing resources within themselves to provide sustanable solutions to poverty.
