Send 200 kids in Haiti to school!

Summary

In Haiti, education is not free. It actually costs almost an entire year's average wages. Consequently, less than 10% of the children in Haiti graduate from high school. We believe that an education is the key to the future of Haiti. We have 400 children with connections to our orphanage who need sponsored or they won't get to go to school this year. We need to find sponsors for 200 of them yet (as of August 27). School starts October 1.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The problem is that education costs almost as much as the average income. That would be similar to a public school education in the United States costing about $45,000 a year - per child. That essentially makes school beyond reach for 90% of the population. Many people are forced to choose between eating and sending their kids to school. Kids who grow up without an education aren't able to break the cycle of poverty like educated kids can.

How will this project solve this problem?

We have identified 400 students with connections to God's Littlest Angels (either they have a sibling placed for adoption or they are related in some other way) and we want to send all 400 of them to school - and do so all the way through high school. We currently have funding for 200 of them for this year - and need enough for 200 more by October 1. If you can help us send these 200 kids to school, you'll help them get an education and help them move out of a life of poverty.

Potential Long Term Impact

This will not only have an impact on these 200 children, but it will also have a significant impact on the lives of their families and their community. 200 children who grow up into educated and literate adults can have a huge long term impact in the direction of their society and their country.
