Merger Students

In 2005, Johny and Rosadite Philippe started a school in Merger, a slum outside Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The school’s purpose is to provide the children of Merger with a Christian education in order to help them develop into self-sufficient, responsible citizens who are disciples of Jesus Christ. Prior to 2005, most of the children in Merger did not attend school. There was no school in , and most families could not afford to send their children to school.

The school grew, and after three years there were 90 students. In May 2009, Glenwood started the Merger Student Sponsorship Program and all 90 children were sponsored by individuals and families from Glenwood. The school has continued to grow and currently there are over 200 students attending the school in kindergarten through grade 9 (the high school program was discontinued this year due to the high cost of maintaining upper grades in comparison to the academic standards being achieved).  

Glenwood’s objective the sponsorship program is to help EMNV succeed in its vision of providing the children of Merger solid Christian academic teaching so they would bless their community, country and world for the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.
