For about $1 per day, you can give the gift of learning to a child. Only 1 out 3 children in Haiti are able to attend school. There are 4 million children under age 18 in Haiti. This means that a lot of children are being deprived of an education! We truly believe that God and education will change this country. In a country where the average income is only a few hundred dollars per year and school costs $360 USD for each child, you can see that it is impossible for a poor family to send 2 or 3 children to school.
For $30 USD per month or just $360 USD per year, you can sponsor a child in school. You will receive the name of your sponsored child, a photo, a Christmas card colored by the child just for you, and a year end report of how the child did in school. We have a staff member who has sole responsibility for the sponsorship program this year and has set the program up so that it is well organized and structured. You can write to your child and send gifts. This is not a pen pal program where the children can write to you. The children are spread out all over Haiti and we only require them to come to the orphanage twice per year.
Since the earthquake devastated Port-au-Prince and almost 2/3 of the schools in Port-au-Prince were damaged by the earthquake, many children had a difficult time finishing school for the 2009-2010 school year. School will restart at the first of October and we want to help 250 children in school this year. That is a lot of children!
If you cannot sponsor a child, maybe you would like to buy a child's uniform, shoes, back pack, and books that they need to attend school? With a one time gift of $150 USD, you can prepare a child with the items he needs to do his best in school. We think this year will be more difficult than most for the parents to prepare their child for school. They do not have the funds to buy uniforms, shoes, and school supplies.
I am looking for two sponsors for each child. One sponsor for the child's tuition and one for their school supplies. Please consider how you might help send a child go to school. We never have enough sponsors for all of the children coming to out gates wanting financial assistance. We need your help!
Please help make a difference in the lives of these children! Give so that they might have a life of hope! Being able to read and write is one of the best gifts that you can give them!
