Mother's Day Gifts for Haiti

This is Nocky - he used English to find a job!
This is Nocky - he used English to find a job!

Successes in Haiti continue thanks to the support you’ve provided. The last time we updated you, we told you about how well the English students did on their English exams. This update, we’re delighted that two advanced English students have used their new language skills to find employment.

That employment will allow them to build secure, earthquake-proof housing for their families, send their children to school, and build a more secure tomorrow. We’re delighted that after just a few months of classes, students are already finding work and, with it, a road out of poverty.

You’ve made the school’s success possible. This Mother’s Day, whether you’re giving or receiving, we hope you’ll take a little extra joy in the lives you’ve changed in Haiti.

If you’re planning on giving a Mother’s Day gift this year, please consider keeping the English school in mind and making a donation in honour of your mum. When you donate as a gift, GlobalGiving will send your mom a lovely card. Cards can be emailed, printed at home, or mailed.

A GlobalGiving tribute card makes a fantastic, meaningful mother’s day gift, and as a bonus, GlobalGiving will be awarding financial prizes for the organisation which receives the most mother’s day donations between May 1st and May 7th.

We hope that this mother’s day, you’ll choose to give mom a gift that also helps Haitian children build a better tomorrow. You can easily send your gift by clicking here.

Thanks so much for all you’ve already given to support education in Haiti, and our warmest regards from Port au Prince.
