This project will contribute to send back to school in South of Haiti 200 orphans children victims of the earthquake by providing them school fees, materials and hotmeals as well and organize an afterschool program in order to improve scores, developing talents and skills in arts of the children at school. That will bring back confidence in the life of the children.
Many people affected by the earthquake coming from Port-au-Prince were back to their native communities. In the South of Haiti based on reports from IOM, there were more than 60,000 people displaced there and more than 5000 children became orphan by the loss of their parents. So, they had a lot of difficulties to access to school because of lack of funds and resources from their relatives. This project is aimed at bringing responses by the access back to school and set up and aftershool program.
REPADS will take in charge annual school fees payment, and will provide school materials and hotmeals especially during the after-school program. The children will be trained in arts like drawing and painting. Specific materials will be brought to set up activities aiming at discovering the talents and other skills of the orphan and vulnerable children. We will recruit local monitors for implementing the afterschool program activities and working with the orphan children in doing homework.
This project will contribute to send back to school 200 orphan children for a better future in their community. By getting access to education, they will have tools to fight against poverty and vulnerability. The after-school program will give them the opportunity to improve their score at school by supporting their activities and to discover and develop theirs skills in arts so that they could perform and become more confident in their possibilities to have a better life.
