ACSI in Haiti


SolectHaiti's First ACSI Director

We are delighted to announce that on January 1st, 2013 Solect Jean Baptiste became the first Director of ACSI Haiti. Solect was born in 1974 at La Salle, Haiti and attended a Christian school there. He became a  Christian when he was 11. Solect earned a degree in theology from Séminaire de Théologie Evangelique de Port-au-Prince and his Masters of Education from Laurel University as well receiving his qualifications in school administration from Quisqueya University. After university he became the superintendent of 10 schools associated with Baptist Haiti Mission and served so well that BHM put him in charge of all their elementary and high schools (over 300 of them).

Solect is married to Vivian and they have 2 daughters.

ACSI Eastern Canada is pleased to support the ministry of Solect and his ACSI Haiti office.

FUNDING REQUEST

ACSI EC has been working in Haiti for over 25 years.

· Teams from Eastern Canada provide teacher/director training.

· Canadian member school students prepare and send several thousand student packs to Haitian students. This includes basic Bible courses whereby Haitian students can earn their own Bibles by completing the courses. The fact is that most Haitian Christian school students and their parents don't own Bibles.

· The ACSI Eastern Canada office has sent Haitian schools hundreds of boxes of French language library books donated (for the most part) by French Catholic public schools in Ontario. This is important because a typical Haitian school with 300 to 500 students will only have 10 or 12 books in their entire school Library.

· ACSI Eastern Canada brings key Haitian Christian school leaders to the Toronto Teachers' Convention.

· In partnership with Indiana Weslyan University, a globally recognized MA programme in Christian School Administration has been developed and made available to Haitian leaders. The first cohort graduated in the fall of 2009 and the Haitian Ministry of Education hired some of them even before they completed their courses. Many graduates have continued their studies at post-graduate levels and are involved in all sorts of educational pursuits throughout Haiti.
