According to the Center for Global Development "in developing, low-income countries, every additional year of education can increase a person’s future income by an average of 10%". UNESCO points out that 71% of Haitians live in poverty and the literacy rate is 8.53%. Open Hands 4 the Fatherless seeks to change this around through a Christ-centered education. Learning about the world that God has created gives children and families possibilities that they had never dreamed of. We are watching as the Myan community transforms through the work of caring teachers who provide education for a community that was without. Now growing up to be a doctor, lawyer, or anything else is within grasp. With this comes a new life for families that have been stuck in generational poverty for which they thought there was no hope of a better future. We believe that everyone has a God-given right to education so we stand on the front line with many others to make that happen in Haiti.
