|In 2004, 200 students went to school in the Church and sometimes had peanut butter sandwiches for lunch. The first 8 classrooms of the first school building were under construction.|
Most Sassier parents don’t have any education, but all of them want their children to go to school and have a better life. Their children are their hope for the future. The School has changed the community. Sassier is filled with lively, educated and dedicated young people now.
We receive no funds from the Haitian Government or any international organizations to operate the school – to pay and train teachers; purchase books and supplies; cook and serve meals to nearly 550 students a day; or maintain the facilities. That is where your help is so important. Without you, there will be no school. Each Adopt a Sassier Student sponsorship of $125 will provide most of a year’s education for one St Jean Baptiste student. Parents pay tuition of about $10 per year, and many struggle to pay that. However, we turn away no student.
You can Adopt A Sassier Student via Sacred Heart Parish’s secure Give Central site.
