World Hope Chicago is building upon projects that the Korean Church of Chicago has established in the past five years in Pignon, Haiti. These projects were made possible through heartfelt donations who wanted to help educate children and support the people of Haiti.
Education has transformative power. To unlock the wider benefits of education, all children need access to both primary and secondary education of good quality. The Child Education Support Program is an easy and effective way to support these projects in Pignon, Haiti.
Sponsor a child’s education
You can help sponsor a child in Haiti by donating monthly to WHC. A donation of $30 will help support one child’s education for a month. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.

Haiti Philadelphia Christian School
We provide financial support the Philadelphia Christian School in Fontaine, Haiti. Our funding has allowed us to expand the building twice, to have it equipped with school furniture (desks, etc.), to conduct Vacation Bible School (VBS), encourage training for teachers, and to initiate a 11 Child Education Support Program (CEP). Our funding has also allowed us provide nutritional meals and tuition assistance to students in need. The Philadelphia Christian School is meant to be our students’ home away from home; a place where they know they are safe, and have access to the resources they need to grow.
Our support is available to all the youth of Fontaine, and we strive to offer them a place of stability in a city where the majority of its residents are struggling to make ends meet. We want our students to learn how to support themselves and their family by providing assistance that can be used no matter where they are. Self-sufficiency and self-respect are key qualities we strive to promote in our students.
