“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”  Proverbs 22:6

Reality.  Meaningful ministry in a country where 70% of the population is functionally illiterate requires attention be given to education.  Note:  The enrollment for the school year 2018-2019 was almost 1,800 students in the NHMI school system with a staff of almost 75 Haitian professors and administrators.

Did You Know

  • Only 1 in 5 children have the opportunity to attend primary (elementary) school in Haiti.
  • 85% of the grade schools in Haiti are private.  15% are public.
  • There is a significant student drop out rate; because, parents can not afford the price of monthly tuition.
  • The standard teaching methods in Haiti are based on recitation and memorization.
  • Each year students are required to pass standardized government testing.
  • For NHMI students, efforts have often been rewarded annually by the overwhelming success rate (average above 90%) in government testing of our graduating children into secondary education.  Public school statistics show less than a 25% passing rate.

Goal.  Recognizing the Godly value of a stronger spiritual emphasis for the children enrolled in the four New Hope Mission schools, Christian based Creole evangelistic and discipleship materials are incorporated into each school’s curriculum.
