Many children in Haiti have no access to quality education. Often there is no school in their area at all. Sometimes, a private school is available, but is unaffordable thus making the education unattainable. For us, that's a problem. We believe in the immeasurable value of education, not just for the children in our care, but for the children in the communities we serve. We are currently supporting 3 schools in the Jacmel, Bossier and Cap Rouge communities. Over 670 children are receiving a quality education. Our schools offer grades 1-7, and students are not only learning reading, writing and mathematics, but they are also learning sciences and art. Our schools are connected to a local church, so the children in the community, and their families, are being supported. In addition to their education, each child receives a daily lunch. For many students, it is their only full meal of the day. We understand the direct correlation between a nourished child and learning. This portion of our feeding program is imperative for the health of these children in the community and their education. It's also important to note the impact these schools are having in the economies of their communities. Funding of these schools provides director and teacher salaries. In these 3 schools alone, we are providing meaningful employment to over 40 teachers and staff. Some of the young boys getting ready for the first day of school Some are happier than others Schools
