Haiti-Sponsor-A-Child School Program
Paying for school tuition, uniforms, and textbooks is out of the question for many Haitian parents. About 40 percent of the population is unable to read and write. The Haiti-Sponsor-A-Child School Program helps educate children so that as adults they can read the Word of God and support themselves. Sponsors’ donations provide textbooks, school supplies, and a warm meal each school day for approximately 8,550 students at 50 schools in Haiti. The program also provides Biblical training and subsidized pay for the teachers. A donation of $65 per month enables five students to go to school.
