Urgent Need: Real Love Academy
Praise God!!! Over $11,000 has been raised to meet our most urgent needs as we launched Year 2 for Real Love Academy!! Thanks to generous gifts we prepared 2 classrooms in our still-under-construction school building, and are able to purchase curriculum, teaching materials and uniforms!
Our most pressing need still is to meet our monthly operating budget. This budget pays our Haitian Teaching Staff and provides a daily meal for everyone. Right now, we struggle to meet our payroll and we have not started our meal program due to a lack of funds. Teaching and learning on empty stomach is challenging!
A monthly gift of $30 for a year or an annual gift of $360 will sponsor a child. A special gift of any amount is always welcomed.

Real Love Academy
Education is key for a sustainable future for our children and for Haiti. There is no free, public education system in Haiti. Schools operate on tuition and outside support. With average income hovering around $2/day, many Haitians cannot afford the tuition costs. Therefore, many do not attend consistently or at all.
Real Love Academy (RLA) will help provide an affordable, quality education to our children at the orphanage and for the families of Lafiteau and surrounding area. The focus of our curriculum is knowledge, character-development and leadership in a Christian environment to unleash the potential of each of our children. A very small tuition will be requested as an investment in their education however, it will not be a reason for a child not attending school.
RLA is set to begin its 2nd year in the 2018-19 school year. We began with 2 pre-school equivalent classes up to 3rd grade. This year, we add Kindergarten and 4th grade classes. Additional grades will continue to be added through high school graduation including trade school programs. This is a much-needed resource to prepare our children, as well as those living in the village, for adulthood and to be leaders. It is vital to our efforts to empower the Haitian people.
Monthly support is $30/month (for 12 months) to pay teachers and resource our education ministry. Use Academy Operations to begin. To sponsor a particular child, scroll down to the Sponsor Card Section then click on the card of the child you want to sponsor, to complete the form. If you would like to see more child sponsor cards, please message [email protected]
Your support is also needed to finish construction of Phase 1 of our new school building and purchase equipment and supplies. Use the Facilities & Equipment to donate.
