Summary

SCHOOLS FOR HAITI supports development and daily operations of two primary schools for over 600 children in the most impoverished region of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Together with free access to education, the children are provided with a safe learning environment and additional support, e. g. clean drinking water and toiletries. Additionally, SCHOOLS FOR HAITI raises awareness among German youth to help improve global access to education and motivates them to become involved.

Challenge

Haiti is currently one of the poorest countries in the world. Eight out of ten people live in absolute poverty and have to make do with less than $2 per day. Currently, 25% of children have no opportunity to attend school and read, write and study. The illiteracy rate is about 40% of the total population. This is due to the fact that attending school in Haiti is officially an obligation, but many families can not afford the school fees. A cycle of poverty and lack of prospects is established.

Solution

Since 2008, SCHOOLS FOR HAITI is managed by PEN PAPER PEACE. Through fundraising, we support the development and maintenance of the elementary schools of St. Emma and St. Nicolas in Haiti's largest slum, Cite Soleil, and provide regular education and a reliable contact point for children who would otherwise be denied access to education. Since then, more than 600 schoolchildren have been attending our schools every year to study, read and write. This gives them better future prospects.

Long-Term Impact

PEN PAPER PEACE stands for education. Symbolically speaking, pen and paper improve the lives of people who live in poverty. We are convinced that education creates perspectives, gives courage and is the prerequisite for a self-responsible future. Socially, education creates the conditions for security, political stability and a fair society. Education creates peace.
