ABOVE: Greetings from our Leogane Elementary School where teacher and graduate of New Missions Isaac Genel and his students are grateful for the gift of education.
Frequently, I’m asked this question, “What’s next for New Missions?” My common response is typically, “What’s now?” I’m not trying to ignore the question, I’m trying to bring awareness to the power of the now. What we are doing today will make tomorrow better.
For example, I’m excited about today because of leaders such as Isaac Genel in Haiti. Today, Isaac is a teacher at our elementary school in Leogane. As a graduate of New Missions, he represents a role model of change to the next generation of five-year-olds starting school at New Missions.
You can be the difference maker in the life of a child. In 2015, we had 677 of our students celebrate their fifth birthdays. In 2016, there will be 701 students who will celebrate their fifth birthdays. This is a major milestone on their journey of growing strong in a country where the survival rate is greatly threatened for children under five.
Please consider making a donation to our Student Scholarship Fund by giving the gift of education to students awaiting a sponsor. Your special year-end gift will help us serve these students at New Missions—by providing proper medical care, food, and a quality education. ~Tim DeTellis
