This Gofundme Campaign will provide the necessary funds to cover ongoing expenses for Child Jesus School, Petit-Goave, Haiti. This includes salaries for faculty and staff, a morning snack and afternoon meal for each student, the necessary school suppliesand sports and recreation equipment.
There are 275 children enrolled in the school (Grades 1 - 9). Through the generosity of some Secular Order communities, Secular Servites, and individual donors, we can provide the students with an education and the possibility of a future full of hope.
All donations received are employed exclusively for the needs of Child Jesus School, its students, teachers, and staff. The faculty and staff are committed to providing the children with a safe environment where they can learn new ideas and skills and develop personally and intellectually as God’s children.
The children are served a snack at the beginning of each school day and fed a meal before returning home from school. For most, this is their main meal for the day.
Realizing the importance of the home and family environment in the proper education and growth of the children, meetings are conducted regularly with the parents to ensure their interest and participation in the school and their children’s education. Fr. Marc Claudy Magloire, a priest of the Archdiocese of Port-au-Prince and the overall Director of Child Jesus School, provides the input sessions for the meetings with the parents. The school personnel consists of a Principal, 2 Assistant Principals, six full-time teachers, four part-time teachers, and six support staff. For Grades 7-9, individual teachers are hired to teach a particular required subject matter.
