The Haitian government is not equipped to provide broad-based education to children. Most children attend private or Catholic schools. Dolval Baptist Church provides such a private school, meeting in its partially constructed building. We hope to complete the building or at least make substantial progress in 2019.
Education is an essential element of our medical program, both at our permanent Cap-Haitien facility and through mobile medical clinics in rural villages. Many of the diseases and conditions we treat are readily preventable. We do our best to educate our patients so that they can proactively improve their own health situation.
We sponsor the education of post-secondary students, who will become future leaders in their communities and the country. Leadership development and education is at the foundation of all other outreach.
