Can you imagine growing up too poor to go to school. Schools in Haiti are very expensive, so poor children simply cannot attend. Many adults in Haiti just never had any opportunity to learn how to read and write.
One day Madame Cillianne, age 62, told me she had no “light.” By “light,” she meant she could not read the Bible, because she had never gone to school. How could she obey the Word of God if she could not read it?
Christian Light School offers classes in Creole in basic reading and writing for adults who never had the opportunity to attend school. They learn how to read and write in Creole, including some basic math. When they can read well, we give them their own Bible.
Mr. Richard enjoys leading the class of eager learners.
Our Adult Literacy Class teaches the adults in the area, many whom have never been to school, to read and write. Imagine their excitement when they are able to read and write their names for the first time!
