Respire Haiti Christian School is providing quality education for children in Kindergarten through 9th grades in Gressier, Haiti. Over 60% of the approximately 500 children in the school are Restaveks.
Our six classroom Primary School was finished in January of 2012 and in June 2012, our four classroom Primary School was finished. Although we charge a nominal rate for registration and for the school year, if students do not have the capability to pay, we still admit them into our school. Additionally, we have a School Sponsorship Program that allows for individuals to sponsor a child in our school. The $300 donation pays for a portion of one child’s school fees, basic medical (including dental), uniforms, books, supplies and two meals (breakfast and lunch).
Our four classroom Secondary building was finished in January of 2013.
Our first full school year on Bellevue Mountain began October 1, 2012. Currently, kindergarten through 9th grade is taught on Bellevue Mountain in addition to three specialized classes, two special education classes, one alternative class for older students and one “Jump Start” class for children who have never been to school before. Respire Haiti Christian School educates over 500 students.
We are blessed by all of our support and generous donors to build our amazing 18-classroom campus in 16 months! If you are interested in helping to support our school (teachers' salaries, materials, books), you can make a difference with any size donation by clicking this link to our donations page.
