Location: Haiti

A partner of St. Andrew’s based in Terrier Rouge, Haiti

Since 1979, St. Andrew’s has partnered with Father Bruno, a Haitian Episcopal priest, to bring the light and love of Jesus Christ to the people of Haiti, the poorest country in our hemisphere. The focus of Bethlehem Ministry is to to support his most recent school. The St. Barthélémy School in northeastern Haiti, now with 961 students, is a state of the art Montessori school that is totally solar powered.

The children are taught in French and are using laptop computers. The school has given this community of 35,000 people in Terrier Rouge a sense of hope and pride, and the adult education literacy program is now in its third year. Just $300/yr. provides a uniform, healthcare, books and a hot meal daily for each student, that for many of the children will be the only meal they get.
