Why a Private Christian Education is an Important Investment for HOHI Children

The choice you make for your children’s education shapes them academically, spiritually, and in their worldview and skills. At Christian schools, the faculty and staff are equipped to address each of these developing areas of a child’s life. These schools take seriously the responsibility to develop children’s minds, but they don’t distance God from academics. They know that developing skills in young people is essential to helping them reach their God-given potential.

At Haven of Hope International we value quality education. After much research and consideration we made the decision in 2019 that all children that walk through Haven of Hope Bolivia will attend a private Christian School.

Thankfully, the local Christian School has been extremely gracious with their tuition rates to make it affordable. Below is a breakdown to give you perspective of how much it cost per year, per child.

Christian educators help cultivate a worldview in which God has His rightful place, and they look to the Bible for guidance in answering life’s big questions. These teachers enhance children’s spiritual development in an intentional, nurturing manner. Class sizes are a lot smaller and our children get more personalized care. Believe it or not, this helps tremendously with the healing process. The children we serve and love have been in some way or more than one way abused, neglected, and forgotten.

In February, the children in Bolivia started a new school year and as you will read below, the children were pretty excited. Unfortunately, classes have been put on hold due to COVID-19. School may be on hold, but learning is not! Our on-campus educators are working hard to help expand what the children have already started learning in their classes.

Many of the boys and girls are still in need for education sponsors to cover tuition for a private christian education. For just $535, a child is completely covered for the entire school year!
