One of the greatest needs for the country of Haiti is educational opportunities for everyone. Because schools cost money (tuition fees, uniform fees, textbook fees, supplies), many families cannot afford to send their children to school. A mother is often forced to choose between putting rice on the table for her children or sending them to school. Food often wins out and the child often lacks the opportunity to grow in knowledge.
We try to partner with schools that are making every effort to provide solid educational opportunities for all children. Some of the ways we are able to help is by starting feeding programs for these schools so that the children get fed daily, thereby enabling the mother to put money towards their child’s education. We also provide these schools with school supplies for the children and teachers. Eventually, we would like to start up after school programs that would give additional tutoring and educational support for the children that are struggling.
