Helping Haitian Angels' (HHA) mission is to care for abandoned children ("Angels") in Haiti by raising them to become healthy, happy, successful members of their communities who will have the tools to positively impact future generations. HHA provides a safe home, nutritious meals and clean drinking water. We also provide for the children's physical, spiritual, emotional and academic well being.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Education in Haiti is a gift - not guaranteed or inexpensive. The Reality in Haiti: 53% are Illiterate ONLY 40% of school age children attend school regularly. ONLY 10% enrolled in Elementary will go to High School. Public school costs money. There is no free education. Join us as we make a difference in the lives of 44 precious Haitain Orphans and give them a chance to hope for something greater. We must be their advocate, their support, their helping hand up into an amazing future.
How will this project solve this problem?
Helping Haitian Angels is committed to giving their 44 abandoned children a superior education. HHA wants to supply each student with tuition, uniform, books and transportation. Along with these basic provisions we desire to also personally encourage our kids who need additional support by supplying tutors to bring them to grade level. For our kids who are clearly gifted, the specialty training that will encourage and enhance their skills. We believe our kids can make a difference in Haiti.
Potential Long Term Impact
Headmaster Quote July 2012: " There are no stupid children in Haiti; just children who have not been given the opportunity to learn" This will give our Kay Anj Orphanage (Angel House) kids the opportunity to learn! As we invest in the future of our 44 wonderful Haitian children, we hope that they are given the opportunities that would help them grow to be the next generation of change and influence within the country of Haiti.
