"Education is essential to providing alternatives for youth as they look to the future and their place within it. Sponsoring a student is essential in the care of body, mind and spirit.” - Long-time Sponsor

Primary Sponsorship

The statistics may not show it, but education is not taken for granted in Haiti. Parents highly value it and children proudly wear their uniforms. So, why aren't more children being educated? Cost is a big factor.

  • 40% of kids ages 5 to 15 are not in school.
  • Nearly 60% do not finish primary school.

A family may spend as much as 40% of their income on education while for other families, tuition is a complete barrier.In order for students to move onto secondary school they must pass a difficult government test.

  • Less than 22% of students go on
    to secondary school after primary school.
  • Haitians recieve an average of
    4.9 years of education.
