Haitian Roots

Changing Haiti's future through education

Why education? Haiti is the poorest country in the West and it costs about $600/year for a child to attend school. However, the average family of 6 earns less than $500/year. When an individual is illiterate, they do not have the basic skills that a quality education offers and are often condemned to a life of poverty, ill health, and social exclusion. The good news is that education beats poverty. Children who attend school are not only healthier, better-nourished, and live more prosperous lives, but they become aware of their own potential in the world and are equipped with the life skills necessary to thrive in society.

We Need Your Help

Parents line up, begging to have their children admitted to our program so that they can have a chance for a better tomorrow. Sponsor a child's education today for only $300 ($25/month) and help us change a child's future.
