The children of Haiti (specifically Village de Vie) need YOUR help!
In the United States, we take an education for granted – even those of us who had to work several jobs or take out debt to get our college educations. We all went to school when we were 6 years old. The lessons we learned have and will carry us for the rest of our lives (everything you need to know you learned in kindergarten :)).
The children I love in Haiti do not have this opportunity. There’s education, but it’s not free. It cost the same as one month’s worth of food for a family of 6. It’s cost $20. twenty bucks. My American response is “that’s is?!? $20?” I blow thru twenty bucks almost daily without much thought. I’m blessed by the professional career. and now I bless an Haitian child by giving them the first step in an opportunity that’s going to change a country. God is working in Haiti (He’s working everywhere) and I want to be a part of it. You can be too. for $20 a month. Follow the link at the top of this post for some more information and to help.
Village de Vie has opportunities for 160 more children to go to school every month. Redeemer Fellowship wants to fill all of those spots by the time our kiddos go back to school in August. If you have a child, please prayerfully consider sponsoring one child. If you have a couple kids, please consider sponsoring a couple of kids. For me, it was about cutting out one meal at a restaurant a month. one. that’s it. If you’re reading this, you’re part of Redeemer because you’re part of my life. Please please please sponsor a child.
The children in the village were literally climbing the walls to listen to us sing and teach the kids at Village de Vie. Climbing the walls! When was the last time you saw an American kid climbing the walls to go to school? When was the last time you saw one excited to talk about what they learned at school today?
Many orphans in Haiti are economic orphans which means their parent(s) live in the village but are unable to feed them so they give them up to the oraphanage so they don’t starve. Their parents do not have any education/means to make a living. Village de Vie teaches the children skills (English, French, Creole, how to cook, laundry, etc) so they can function outside of its walls when they turn 18. This $20 education is paving a way for children to be able to provide for themselves and their future children for generations. It stops the cycle of hunger and not-knowing. This will change a country. Please be a part of it with me!
When you sponsor a child, remember to put “Redeemer KC” in the comments/description line so the Haiti Orphan Project knows to send the money to Village de Vie. God Bless.
