Destined For Grace School

The mission of Destined for Grace is to provide an education to children in Mirebalais, Haiti. For the past ten years, we have been doing just that!  Ecole Destined For Grace educates and feeds students in kindergarten through 6th grade.


Ecole Destined for Grace has had a challenging few years. The fall of 2019 brought political strife in Haiti which forced the country into lockdown.  The students adapted to distance learning then and remained committed to their studies. Our students returned to the classroom in January to later have the school shut down due to the Covid-19 pandemic. They are full of strength and determination and continue to growing physically, academically and spiritually. On September 21st 2021 our students are scheduled start a new school year. Social distancing will be practiced and sanitary measures will continue to be taken. We are excited, through the support of our generous sponsors, to offer more school supplies, textbooks, extracurricular activities and a wide variety of food offered through our meal program. We are thrilled by the results we have seen in these students and the progress they are making. Their determination to take their studies seriously is inspiring!

You can help our students achieve this academic success by sponsoring their education.  For $125 a year you can sponsor a child at Ecole Destined For Grace.  The $125 covers a student’s tuition, uniform, school supplies and a hot meal each day.  You can sponsor a student by sending in a check to our P.O. box, donating online through PayPal or visiting one of our stores.

Our students and their families are responsible for contributing $1 a month toward their students education. The rest of the cost is covered through your sponsorships and funds raised at our thrift stores. We require the families to pay a small fee so that they feel involved and take ownership of their child’s education. We are currently accepting sponsorships for the 2021/2022 school year!
