Bringing a School to Life in Haiti

Bringing a School to Life in Haiti In a remote village in Haiti called Coco Lester, a family of six felt compelled to help the children who lived among the poorest of the poor. They began by cleaning some land in a dense area and building a makeshift pavilion. They gathered some adults who shared the same dream and called them teachers. A rusted bell rang out and children from ages 3 to 18 came in numbers. As emotions overwhelmed them, they named the school the All the Children Are Children School. That was seven years ago. Today the children are still coming in record numbers.

How to Sponsor a Child in the Developing World

In some developing countries poverty kills 1 in 3 children in their infancy.

Christian charity World Vision, one of the world’s leading relief and development agencies, has therefore developed a child sponsorship scheme which links people in more affluent countries with individual children in developing countries around the world.
