The Joseph School Construction Begins

The Joseph School is laying a firm foundation of knowledge, leadership, service and faith with the children of Cabaret.  Now we are laying a firm foundation for the stones and mortar of the school itself.  This week The Joseph School began digging the foundation for the gate to the land you see here.


This past school year, The Joseph School started with a kindergarten class of 31 students and 5 teachers meeting in a large rental house in Cabaret, Haiti.  Because the Haitian government believes in The Joseph School mission, they gave TJS over 20 acres of land to build a permanent school.  The government’s stipulation was that we begin and not allow the land to lie unused.  Because of generous gifts from people like you, we have started with site improvements, a gate and a road.


In September a new class will join the current class at TJS bringing our total student population to about 60 students in kindergarten and 1st grade.  Our goal is to have the permanent school ready for these students to move into by January.


To do that, we need your help.  Many of you have been very generous already.  Some of you have waited to give when construction begins.  If you can give to help out with construction, your gift would be very timely.  If you cannot, we ask you to pray for The Joseph School, its staff, teachers and students.  God is doing amazing work in and through the school.  We hope you will continue to be a part of this effort.


It’s an exciting time for The Joseph School and we are grateful for your friendship as we are on this incredible journey to see lives changed in Haiti.
