We are so thankful to have Ashley here in Hatit helping with school sponsorship. We would love to be able to send every child that applies for the program to school this year. Take sometime and read what Ashley has to say about our school sponsorship program.
Did you know only 1 out of 3 children have the privilege of receiving an education in Haiti? Everyday I have the pleasure of interacting with children who passionately desire to go to school. Since coming to God’s Littlest Angels, I have received a lot of questions regarding the school sponsorship program. Every July children and their families travel between 5 minutes to 3 hours in order to apply for the program we offer here at GLA. The majority of students that make up our program are siblings of former adopted children. However, there are also a handful of children from the neighborhood that come to apply.
We are already two weeks into the 2016-2017 school year registration and over 150 children have signed up. In past years, we have received as many as 366 applications. We trust that if God has provided us with this many children, He will also be faithful in providing us with sponsors. If you sponsored a child last year and would like to sponsor the same child this year, then please let us know. Children who do not have sponsors will not attend school.
