After completion of standard course work students may be accepted for secondary school or may move to the Vocational Education program, to learn advanced woodworking and tailoring skills, which they use to earn a living in the hearing world.

Uncorrected vision conditions or eye health problems create many barriers in life, academically, socially and athletically.

Vision for Children provides comprehensive eye exams for early detection and treatment to provide the best opportunity to correct vision problems early.
Haiti Education Foundation
In Haiti, the poorest country in the western hemisphere, private schools are the only schools and very few families can afford even the most modest tuition. The Haiti Education Foundation (HEF) makes a difference in the lives of the children of Haiti, helping Haitian girls and boys learn to read, write, master a trade, and study God’s Word. HEF provides hope for children, families, villages and a country by providing free public education.
Medical Benevolence Foundation
The Medical Benevolence Foundation supports FSIL, the only baccalaureate nursing school in Haiti. FSIL’s unique full baccalaureate curriculum is preparing Haitian nurses to develop the problem solving and critical thinking skills needed to practice patient centered, competency based nursing care. The nursing program has been designed to train Haitian nurses to provide medical care in their home communities. Students receive clinical training at nearby Hôpital Ste. Croix, where they get their first opportunities to help provide professional care for patients. Students receiving scholarship support commit to serving 2 years in Haiti following graduation and do not receive their diplomas until the service requirement is fulfilled.
