For almost 3 decades Global Faith In Action ASAP Haiti Education Project has been transforming an illiterate and impoverished community. As a result, the people of Lambert have a school, computer technology lab, trained teachers, and a medical clinic with a doctor and lab technician.
Consequently, the people of Lambert are healthier and more residents are literate, but the people still live in extreme poverty, 80% unemployed and still dependent upon our sponsorship program.
Your monthly donation will pay for one child uniform, one meal a day, and a valued education. We are proud of the education the students receive. Students from our school rank with the highest in the nation of Haiti. Why not decide today! Sponsor a child, or two or even three. It hardly seems possible, but children like these pictured above will have the gift of an education if you simply decide to spare $20 a month or $240 a year, you can provide an education for an elementary or secondary aged student. Or a one time donation in any amount.
You can change the life of a Haitian child born into one of the poorest households in the Western Hemisphere. Approximately 60% of the children in Haiti do not go to school. The families live on an average income of $180 a year.
The children pictured are healthy because they have U.S. sponsors who help them go to school. Each day at school they receive a healthy meal, along with a quality education. Their test scores rate amongst the highest in the country.
The mother (standing) and father (seated) in front of their home can only hope that their little boy will receive an education. They cannot afford to even pay the cost of one months tuition. In Haiti there are government public schools, but they only educate 5% of the population and are located far from this rural area. Will you help?
We are thankful for the Wichita Downtown Rotary Club who has helped us renovate an old building and transform it into a medical clinic located directly across the road from the Lambert Baptist Elementary and Secondary School. It is so important that students and their families receive medical care.
Dr. Tony has recently completed his medical degree, and has chosen to return to the people and community that he loves and desires to serve. Tony is a doctor today because U.S. sponsors helped him receive his education. Pictured above from left to right is Dr. Tony, a visiting nurse from Minnesota, the resident school nurse, and a kindergarten student who is complaining of a tummy ache. Would you help sponsor another Tony the community needs so much help.
It is important that the child you sponsor will be prepared to compete in todays high tech society. Pictured above is a two-room Computer Technology Lab that we have finished building. We hope to equip the technology lab with 34 laptop computers, a satellite dish, and solar panels to provide enough electricity to power the computers.
Students who attend school learn what it takes to create healthy communities. Above is pictured a dry latrine. Several years ago, we built a girls and boys dry latrine on the campus of the Lambert Baptist School. The latrine is clean, and recycles the waste creating fertilizer – saving the underground water from being polluted. The latrine also includes a hand washing area. During the Cholera epidemic last year there were no diagnosed cases in this area of Haiti perhaps because of the hand washing emphasis taught by Dr. Tony and the school teachers.
Global Faith in Action is a dialogue in action non profit 501 c3 organization. We have done many community events in the past. Our yearly dinner dialogues have been taking place in Wichita for over 10 years. Over the past few years we have partnered with the City of Wichita to do an event for the National Day of Racial Healing. From our Harmony Concerts, keep our children safe programs, and now during the pandemic online panel discussions. We will continue to build bridges and bring our community together. With the help of our generous donors we will be able to provide more programs to entertain and educate our community. Please click on the link below to donate to Global Faith in Action
