Oh Happy Days! Our first two Benevolence Booster Newsletters have been sent out! We have 13 people representing 16 students. It's a great start but we could really use your help! We don’t want you to miss a single newsletter so if you sign up now we’ll send you what you’ve missed. As a Booster you are able to become a monthly sponsor for our school AND meet each of our students and staff! If you signed up to become a Booster and did not receive the email Booster letter reply to this and let us know! (Hopefully we didn't get sent to spam!)

Growth is on the horizon in Haiti and our prayer is that we will be able to purchase the land the Benevolence School sits on and the adjacent land. The goal is to do this over a 2-year span. This March we were able to make our first payment of $1,000 with $13,000 remaining on the balance. In July we will be able to do the necessary work to lay pipes for water and build a collection tank. WATER at the school! So exciting and a huge relief to our kitchen staff. Not to mention the kids will be ale to wash their hands before eating instead of trying to make watered down hand sanitizer last. This is also the first step we need to take to continue building!

We had another successful trip to Haiti in March and looking forward to taking a team from Providence United Methodist Church in July. The students are doing wonderful and working hard on their studies! Some of our teachers have been putting in overtime to get students up to speed. At our school we may have 9 year olds in Kindergarten or a 16 year old in 4th grade because they have received little to no education in the past. I look forward to the day when all of our students are learning at the same level because they have been with us since preschool and getting the proper education they need!  

The Big Payback is on Tuesday, May 3rd and we are participating for the second time! Last year we made over $7,000 and we'd love to do it again! This year all the funds will go toward our land and building fund. We have many hopes and dreams for our school, such as computers, science projects, photography lessons and so much more! We can't do it all until we have more space! We'll send out more info on the Big Payback in a few days but for now would you consider putting aside $10 or whatever you feel comfortable with to donate on that day? We'll see you then! 

Much love and appreciation,

Founder, Grace and Glory
