Education Equals Hope
In the spring of 2012, Youth 4 Business began an official partnership with Christ Church Anglican and their Haitian sister church St. Jean Baptist in Savanette, Haiti. Christ Church Anglican is located in Overland Park, KS and has been partnering with St. Jean Baptiste for over 20 years. Ruth and Ryan Entwistle met the director of their Haiti World Team, Susan Meeder, while living in Haiti in 2008. They started talking about partnership and in 2012 were able to put together a plan to replicate the Y4B entrepreneurship education program linked with a small microfinance program at St. Jean Baptiste. Coicy Francky, Y4B program director, has worked tirelessly to train the parishioners to run their program. They have approximately 50 participants, 27 with loans of $65-$100.
In 2015, Christ Church Anglican started a partnership with an organization called Education Equals Hope. To read more about Education Equals Hope, visit their website at educationequalshope.org.

Ongoing prayer for the people of Haiti and the work of Youth 4 Business is deeply appreciated. Here are some specific prayer needs:
For the people of Haiti, as they continue to recover from the devastating August 2021 earthquake and the hurricane that followed
For the youth of Les Cayes as they grow up in a challenging environment
For our school teachers, program director, Coicy Francky, and assistant Merline Remes, support staff Pastor Evilio Milien and Chinot Nickenson, and their families as they dedicate their time and energy to the education of youth in business
