Creole Classes

At UMKC located in Kansas City, Mo, 4-5 times a year, classes are offered on 6 consecutive Saturdays in Haitian Creole, which is the predominate language in Haiti. The classes provide a language book, adult students keep. Instructors are Haitian. On "graduation" day there is Haitian food to be eaten- to bring the culture "home". Poetry and songs can be part of the lessons for interested participants. Some of the former students were part of medical or religious mission trips, as well as the curious and those wishing to adopt a Haitian child.

Population(s) Served

GHS is a participant of the Greater Kansas City Ethnic series of festivals which culminates with the Kansas City celebration held in Swope Park each year, along with dozens of other ethnic groups.  GHS was appointed to the Ethnic Enrichment Commission by the Mayor's Office to represent Haiti. Throughout the year there are small ethnic groupings at area high schools, museums, wherein a cultural exchange is had.

Population(s) Served

GHS operates by a board of directors, applying Robert's Rules of order, with the broad goal of supporting elementary education in three communities in NW Haiti. We started as an ad hoc group of volunteers. There are no  salaried nor paid positions. (By ad hoc we mean formed for a particular purpose without consideration of wider application.) But  the application is broadening as we begin working with community partners in the communities of Colin, Repos and Fond-Poux, including parents of school children attending GHS schools, and other community members.The program provides salaries to 16 teachers and three principals. The Haitian youth are taught by "certified" Haitian teachers. (In Haiti- adults with 12 years of education can be certified- their baccalaureate.) This certification is done by the country's department of education.Approximately half of all school eligible children do not attend any school for lack of classroom, teachers, books, essentially everything. GHS addresses the fundamental needs- through fund-raising. Teacher salaries, cloth purchases so Haitians can make children's uniforms, , books in French and world maps, paper/pens- Basics!Given the state of education in this country, wherein Haiti has the lowest literacy rate of the Caribbean and Central America, literacy proficiency is paramount.
