It’s no secret the most effective way to raise a country out of poverty and disparity is through education.
Haiti is the poorest country in the northern hemisphere. Approximately 80% of the population lives on under $2.00 US per day. Only 50% of the children attend school. 39% percent of the population can neither read nor write. There is no government support for schools.
Haitian Outreach is working to change these statistics by providing children the gift of an education through our Child Sponsorship Program. We support children in 6 schools in Port-au-Prince and surrounding regions. We have over 350 children from kindergarten through high schoo. Many have graduated to become bankers, diplomacy professionals, teachers and doctors. Things most children never even dream of becoming. With your help, these children will grow and contribute to further the quality of life in Haiti.
