As many of you know Cabaret Haiti Mission is a ministry in Haiti that is 3 prong.  We have an orphanage with 51 children that we care for 24 hours a day.  2 churches that are impacting the community and teaching the Word of God, and 2 schools that are educating over 400 students.  Our school in Te Nwa has 115 students and is doing great.  It's located just about 2 miles from our main campus where our orphanage sits.  These types of villages typically only have about 10% literacy rate and education is not something that is much of a priority.  We are so proud of our Haitian leadership and teachers at this school.  The work they do is truly changing the lives of these little girls and boys.  In the past year, because of some very generous donations we have been able to build a school house.  The entire community is proud to call this "their" school.  We have also been able provide a hot meal each day for each of the students at this smaller school.  The nutrients the meal provides have been crucial to the success of the students as most of them get very little to eat at their homes.  We pray that God would continue to grow this schools impact in the community and the gospel would be pushed into the dark.



We also have a bigger school that sits directly across the street from our orphanage.  This school has over 300 students and has been around since 1998.  All the kids from the orphanage attend this school and most of the teachers live in our village.  Through partner ministries like The Mission Haiti the majority of the students have been able to attend this school for free.  We recently had to make some leadership changes within the school and are currently seeking prayer as we hope to make some major improvements to the school  and how it operates.  One of the changes we hope to implement by next school year is a food program for all the students that attend this school.  We used to have a food program but had to do away with it a couple of years ago due to lack of funding.  For 30 cents a day ($10 monthly) we can provide a meal for a student. We will be posting a lot more information about this food program soon on our new website cabarethaitimission.org. Please consider being a part of this needed area of our ministry as we grow and improve.
