Brick by brick: Your generosity builds a strong foundation for Haitian children

The LakayTimoun school expansion continues! Your help is urgently needed as we add more classrooms to meet the needs of our ever-growing community. 

LakayTimoun Building Fund

The Challenge

On registration day for the 2021-22 school year, prospective students and their families were lined up hours before enrollment began.


The word continues to spread about the educational and life-enrichment opportunities at LakayTimoun. And the needs are real.


How could we say no?


 In 2020, LakayTimoun opened its doors to a record 100+ students, kindergarten through fifth grade. Thanks to the generosity of folks just like you, we were ready with new classrooms and bathrooms.  

 

But our little family continues to grow. We enrolled 38 NEW students for the 2021-22 school year, adding to those who will return. The time is now for additional classrooms above the ones added last year. 


That also means adding more staff, more books and supplies, and food. 

 

Our overall costs are expected to rise by about $1,000 per month.  

The Solution

Thanks to a generous large donation, the next classrooms are underway. The roof and doors (at an estimated cost of $17,000) are the next ask. In recent years, we've grown by leaps and bounds, adding not only permanent classrooms but also bathrooms and a kitchen. Students who attend are ensured both schooling and meals.


Work is being done by locals in a true community effort, proceeding as supplies and funding are available.


The additional space allows LakayTimoun to continue broadening our impact on the local area, not only offering essential education for kids, but also solid work and salaries for teachers and other staff.  

The Opportunity

From the very beginning, LakayTimoun has stretched every dollar through faith, strategy and divine intervention. We have seen God move in miraculous ways, coming through with just what we need, again and again, at just the right time.


Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us in this latest effort?   


We'd welcome the support as we continue building classrooms.

But we'd also welcome gifts that will help us provide food and supplies for our hurting community.
