What does R.E.A.C.H. stand for?
Haiti & The Phillipines
Schools in countries like Haiti and the Philippines do not receive any financial support from the government. Resources to pay the teachers, purchase books, supplies, uniforms, even meals must be obtained through private funding. These students deeply desire to receive an education.
Cannot School is tucked back in the mountains of Haiti, about 15 minutes outside of the town of MacDonald. In 2017 a Canadian Missionary, named Barb, started the school. Through your partnership, we sponsors 80 children at the school. When the program started, the staff taught kindergarten through third grade and provided one hot meal per week. In four years, an additional grade was added, a new building was built and four meals per week were added. The 80 students at the school are hand-picked by the principal as being the “neediest” in the community, and who would otherwise not have an education.
MacDonald school is located in St. Marc about 2 hours from Port-au-Prince. The
town of MacDonald has approximately 10,000 residents and the school currently
has 500 students. This school has received little support from the government and currently receives no support. The community has given some support but as of recently all support has ceased because of social and economic issues.
In 2020, a student sponsorship program was created and 30 children are currently sponsored. The sponsorship pays for tuition, books, and uniforms. In 2022, due to social and political unrest community financial support ceased. After learning the teachers had not been paid for months we decided to create a sponsorship program for teachers. At the MacDonald School, there are 5 full time and 7 part time teachers, 14 teachers aids, and 1 janitor. Our goal is to secure financial support which will be used for teachers/staff salaries, computers, books and other resource materials.
Canaanite Faith Church is located in Bulacan, approximately one hour from the capital of Manila, in the region of Central Luzon, with a highly concentrated population of 3,708,890 people. Mission 1:11 in Bulacan currently supports 30 students. The students attend different schools, in this municipality, within the range of primary to secondary education, including one college student. This sponsorship program focuses connecting with children in their community while encouraging and equipping parents. It provides financial support to aide in the children's educations, a weekly feeding program and building projects.
