Our vision is for all families in Haiti to have access to education and have sufficient income to be able to provide for their family’s essential needs. We will work towards our vision by coming alongside families, and family units, in practical ways.
Our passion is to come alongside families to strengthen them and empower them to build their capacity in sustaining ways. We recognize that change takes time and too often a child's education is cut short when the family has minimal resources.
You can come alongside a family, and help them achieve financial sustainability, by sponsoring their child to attend Elementary School, High School or Post-Secondary Education.
A sponsored child will have their tuition and fees paid, and be provided with their required text books. Families are encouraged to participate in the education process by providing uniforms, supplies and transportation (when necessary). We believe it is important for families to be part of the process and if they are not financially able, they will be encouraged to participate in our Small Business Loan program.
The cost of sponsorship varies depending on the level of education:
Elementary School: $30/month
High School: $40/month
Post-Secondary: minimum $50/month (depending on career path)
Family Day is a special holiday that encourages us to be intentional about connecting with our loved ones. This year it is on Monday, February 15th.
As an organization that is passionate about strengthening families, we are excited to offer you a unique option to celebrate Family Day with your families while empowering a family in Haiti at the same time!
Purchase a chicken on behalf of a family member and we will give the chicken to a student in Haiti. We will take a video of the chicken being delivered and include a personalized message in the video for your family member. Purchase the chicken using the link below and email us to let us know who the chicken is being purchased on behalf of. We will send the video to you and you can share it with your family member on Family Day.
As market days in Haiti are on Saturdays it would be helpful to have orders before Saturday, February 6th.
