Samuel's Story: LIFE Academy is an "answer to prayer"

Updated: Mar 25, 2022

Samuel is 6 years old and this is his first year at LIFE Academy and his first year ever attending school!

In this video, he is waiting for his taxi to arrive to take him to school at LIFE Academy! His mom says he is always this excited to go to school each day.

He is one of the 40 children in our special education classes who directly benefit from your support and participation in the #JayWalk50k!

His family moved to the Leogane area, where Neply is, from Port Au Prince fleeing the danger and violence in the capital. Samuel’s mother found a place to put Samuel in therapy but after a while, the transportation became too expensive.
