Improve Education in Haiti

Project Leader:

Sister Michel Emilienne

Eliminating illiteracy is a top human rights priority in Haiti. One in two Haitian teenagers is illiterate. The quality of public education is unfortunately very low, and 90 percent of succeeding schools are private and charge expensive school tuitions that only the rich can afford. More than 200,000 children do not attend primary school, let alone high school. Each year in Cite Militaire, Haiti, 50 smart, hardworking but poor children graduate from 9th grade with little or no opportunity to end their life of poverty. The Daughters of Mary Help of Christians believe the lives of these 50 children can be changed by providing two more years of high school education. The sisters are asking for your help to extend their high-quality, affordable K - 9th grade school in Cite Militaire to include 10th - 12th grades. They need $20,000 to expand the existing school. Give $25 so 50 students each year can gain stable, better-paying employment and improve their entire community.

School will restart in Haiti on August 10. At the School of the Infant Jesus, some children will attend at the beginning of the week and some at the end of the week. The families appreciate your help with this opportunity to add a high school. At this time, they do not have any affordable high schools nearby.
