Many children in Haiti are placed into orphanages because their families cannot afford an education for them. School is not free in Haiti, & the expenses of uniforms, school & testing fees, & books is more than many people are capable of paying. Desperate for their children to get an education, an orphanage often seems to be their only option.
We partner with existing schools in the mountains in areas where children are most at risk, & provide sponsorships that cover school fees so that these children can get an education while staying with their families.
We believe (and studies show) that getting an education is vital to improving the lives of children & the next generation.
