In the poorest country in the western hemisphere, a country wracked by corruption and natural disasters, our students need a higher education in order to secure good jobs and help raise their communities out of poverty.
COTN seeks to empower our students by sending them to vocational schools and universities. The program begins with a gap assignment. During this time, students gain practical work experience within COTN in an area of interest, contribute to the ministry in a meaningful way, and prepare for the next phase of their education. After completing a gap assignment, students begin their course of study in a university or vocational school.
Your gift will provide tuition, room and board, books, materials, and travel for students in Haiti. Thanks to your support, these students will become doctors, teachers, business owners, and leaders. By continuing to equip these students with tools for success, we believe they will create positive change in their community and, ultimately, their nation.
