Esther LERANTIS has worked hard in school. She is very bright and qualifies to attend university. Her father is a farmer in Callebasse and her mother has worked at GLA for almost 10 years. Her mother, Ghislaine, is the head cook at the Toddler House.
Ghislaine said that Esther has a dream of being a doctor. She is bright enough, but the family does not see a way to pay all of her tuition each year for 7 years! It can cost up to $5000 USD per year for her tuition and books. That is a lot of money for a Haitian farm family!
I thought I would write to you and see if anyone would like to help support Esther in her dream of a becoming a doctor. School starts in November and she must take a special test to see if she qualifies for the program. She will take that exam soon.
Her family does not want her to get her hopes up if financial aid cannot be found.
Many of you will remember Dr. Claude Louis who as a young boy also dreamed of being a doctor. GLA helped Claude to attend Notre Dame University by paying his tuition every year. He graduated in 2006 and worked so hard after the earthquake to make a difference and started a clinic in the remote area of Bongard. Claude will be returning to the States on Saturday to further his education and specialization.
Donors helped pay for Claude’s education and that education changed his life.
We all have a chance to help change the life of Esther, too. Would you consider helping her with a donation, so that she can realize her dream?
