The school year is ending, and we at TJS would like to take a minute to reflect on all we have accomplished.
This year, we have had many struggles and difficulties relating to the political unrest in Haiti. Despite the challenges we face, we know that conditions like these are the reason The Jospeh School exists. We truly believe that leadership changes everything, and that by teaching these children today, we can change a country tomorrow. Here, we are building leaders who love without discrimination, who know the importance of fraternity and justice, and who are reflections of Jesus’s love wherever they go. We are here to help build the future, and the events of the year have only proved the need for programs like The Jospeh School.
Regardless of the circumstances, we are so proud of our students as they finish out the school year. We have had the privilege to watch as they have grown in mind, body, and spirit. Our students have worked incredibly hard to learn more about the world around them, and as they learn and grow, they get ready to enter the world and inspire change. We do not prepare students just for exams, but for the life they are called to lead as Christians and as Haitian citizens.
Although it is difficult to see today, there is a bright future waiting in Haiti. Our job is to support students while they create the future waiting for them. As our students succeed more and more, we are so excited to see the world they are going to build.
