About Child Jesus School, Petit-Goâve, Haiti
The Secular Order of the Servants of Mary sponsors and supports Child Jesus School, Petit-Goâve, Haiti. There are 230 children enrolled in the school (Grades 1 – 9). Through the generosity of some Secular Order communities, Secular Servites, and individual donors we are able to provide the students with an education and provide them with a possibility of a future full of hope.
All donations received are employed exclusively for the needs of Child Jesus School, its students, teachers, and staff. The faculty and staff are committed to providing the children with a safe environment in which they can learn new ideas and skills and develop personally and intellectually as God’s children.
The children are served a snack at the beginning of each school day and fed a meal before returning home from school. For most, this is their main meal for the day.
