September 2017 – Back to School

September is a busy month, both in the US and in Haiti, with lots of back-to-school excitement! This is an amazing time of the year at TOHH, because we get to see all our sponsored kids start school!

Back-to-school smiles!

We are always so grateful for our child sponsors. You are changing the lives of so many children in our community. As the children go back to school this September, we want to take this opportunity to send a extra special ‘thank you’ to all the child sponsors who make this possible for the children!

This typical Waljince smile could not be more adorable!
We are so proud of each and every one of our sponsored children, and of the progress they have made in school. They love school, and are so grateful for the opportunity to attend through sponsorship. We visited the children on their first day in school, and were so happy to share the pictures of their smiling faces! Take a look at some of our sponsored kids all dressed up in their uniforms, and ready to learn!
Third Grade: Jude, Samantha, Julio, Stephanie, Peterson, John Peter, Rosemitha, Julinda, and Ecclesiaste
Fourth Grade: Evando, Claude, Astron, Cliforde, Wideline, Penthia, Terravil, Elie, and Cherlie

Fifth Grade: Thedson, Angeline, Rebecca, Julien, and Angello
Ninth grade: Onèse, Michelson, Francois, and Simonia

Another big ‘thank you’ to our TOHH child sponsors! You are giving these children an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and breaking the cycle of poverty in Haiti through sponsorship!

Cassandra was too adorable trying to figure out
where the music was coming from in this card!!

Happy birthday to our sponsored kids with birthdays in September!

We had so much fun putting on a birthday party for them this month, complete with cake and presents! The kids were so excited to come be part of the party.
