Children's Education & Schools

Why Help Children in Haiti? Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere.  The impact of this spirit-crushing impoverishment is especially felt by the children whose families cannot afford the cost of education.

Since 1995, Hope for Haiti's Children has helped to establish and fund the construction of 10 Christian school facilities in partnership with local Haitian churches of Christ. Located in the central and west departments (departments=states) of Haiti, these church affiliated schools serve over 2,500 children. Of the 2,500 children enrolled, over 1,300 are HFHC sponsored!

Hope for Haiti's Children serves to unite a child in need with a sponsor who provides that child with the funds necessary to receive a quality Christian education. We also manage grants to assist with vocational training for young adults, construction of new schools, and facility repairs/improvements.

girl-writing"Although public education is free, the cost is still quite high for Haitian families who must pay for uniforms, textbooks, supplies, and other inputs. Due to weak state provision of education services, private and parochial schools account for approximately 90% of primary schools, and only 65% of primary school-aged children are actually enrolled. At the secondary level, the figure drops to around 20%. Less than 35% of those who enter will complete primary school. Though Haitians place a high value on education, few can afford to send their children to secondary school and primary school enrollment is dropping due to economic factors."

See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.
