Our Children

Children accepted into our education sponsorship program understand the benefits that an education can provide but, due to the tough economic circumstances in Haiti, are unable to afford the minimum costs of tuition and fees required to attend public school. After submitting an application, they are evaluated by one of our in-country coordinators and must be approved by a member of the Haitian Roots Board of Directors before they are accepted to our program. For $300/year (or $25/month) you help a child attend school -- an opportunity taken for granted by most of us. To the children (and their families) in our sponsorship program, receiving an education means hope for the future and an opportunity to break the cycle of poverty. You can change the life of one of these precious children by becoming a sponsor today!

If you give a man a fish he is hungry again in an hour. If you teach him to catch a fish you do him a good turn.

Marcus Senatus

Needs a Sponsor

Hello. My name is Marcus and I was born in 2013. I just started school. My teachers say that I am very smart. My biggest obstacle is that I don't have any materials or food to bring from home. I hope that HRA is able to get a food program running soon so that I will be able to have at least one meal per day. Thank you for giving me the chance to start my education on time and give me hope for the future.
