Several years ago, the Good Samaritan School was started in a church building in Luly, Haiti. Since it opened, the goal of the Good Samaritan School has been to welcome and educate children – especially those children whose families struggle with poverty. In partnership with our amazing sponsors, this small school continues to grow!


The Luly School is also welcoming more students as many families seek a safe haven away from gang violence. Families and children have flocked to Luly from the neighboring community of Williamson and areas like Port-au-Prince.


Thanks to many generous supporters from Grace Community Church, Forest Hill Church and our Giving Tuesday donors, the new classrooms are finished!


The benefits to this project are many:


  • The new classrooms open more areas for students to learn and grow. Students in these schools in Luly can experience joy and laughter alongside classmates and teachers amid the growing turmoil in Haiti.


  • The construction crew, who worked tirelessly to finish these projects, earned pay that will sustain their families for months. With job opportunities few and far between in Haiti right now, this was an added benefit for the crew.


  • In the midst of fear and uncertainty, the classroom completion gave the students, teachers, and community something to celebrate! Students sang “this is the day the Lord has made” whole-heartedly to celebrate.


Thank you for building better schools and building better futures!
