Because of the extreme poverty in Haiti, and because there is no "free" education, most parents cannot afford to send their children to school.
His Hands for Haiti has helped to establish a sponsorship program through which you can sponsor a child in Haiti to help them attend school. $50.00 (US) TWICE per school YEAR, will pay for one of these beautiful children to attend school. $50.00 twice per school year will provide them with a uniform, an education as well as a hot meal at school (in the schools that prepare a noon meal). (For more information on which schools are able to prepare a noon meal, see the page for each community on the "Community Profiles" page) The opportunity to attend school is life-changing for these children.
Sponsors receive a photo and personal information about the child they are helping including information about how to correspond with their child, if they choose to do so. Sponsors can choose the age and/or gender of the child they would like to sponsor and may continue to sponsor the same child from year to year, as long as the child remains in the program. 100% of the sponsorship payment goes directly to Haiti. None of it is used to cover the administrative expenses of this program here in the US.
Sponsoring a child in Haiti is truly a blessing not only to the child, but to the sponsor as well. Some sponsors have been able to join one of our mission teams traveling to Terrier Rouge and have experienced the joy of meeting their sponsored child! Would you consider sponsoring a Haitian child today?
