HHA's School Vision for Kay Anj Kids

by helping haitian angels

Summary

Our Kay Anj Village school, opening in October 2014 will provide an education taught in Haitian Creole that will change the future for our children and the children attending our new school. As a rule Haitian schools are taught in French. French is not spoken at home, church, on the streets. To provide the best education possible we believe children must learn in their native tongue. They will be taught French and English as a foreign language beginning in 4th grade.

Challenge

There is a serious injustice affecting the children of Haiti where 100% of them speak Creole yet the Haitian system favors children who are fluent in French. Haiti's system leaves the majority paying for schooling that does not educate them. French should be acquired in school as a second language beginning in 4th grade.The schools are trying to force the children to memorize facts in a foreign language that they do not understand, killing the spirit for learning in 80% of their students.

Solution

Haiti's children, deserve the pursuit of happiness and the permission to dream. Right now most Haitian children are born into a life of physical work in the fields, or in city slums. For 50% of them the classroom is unobtainable because they cannot afford the costs to even get through the door. Entrance fees, uniforms, books, semester fees, test fees, and a daily meal are all beyond these children's reach. Our Kay Anj Village School will provide these life changing blessings.

Long-Term Impact

We believe our curriculum, methodology is imperative to the success of Haiti's children becoming literate. Schools should not feel like prisons. School should be lively, peaceful and a creative place to learn. Our children will absorb knowledge because they are reading, hearing, and discussing information in their mother tongue, the language that they understand. These precious children will realize their God given gifts, talents and be able to beautifully and successfully contribute to society
