Access to quality education remains key to Haiti’s social and economic development. The current state of education in Haiti, however, is not sufficient for the task. Surveys conducted by the UNDP indicate that Haitians who are 25 years and older received on average only 4.9 years of education and only 29 percent attended secondary school. These statistics show that a generation of Haitian youth is at risk for not having the necessary knowledge and basic skills to succeed in the labor force and contribute to the continued development of the country. Most schools in Haiti have minimal government support, lack qualified instructors, and are relatively expensive. School expenses are often a significant financial burden for low income families. Half of public sector teachers in Haiti lack basic qualifications and almost 80 percent of teachers have not received any pre-service training.
With your help, we have opened our new school in Haiti. We began with 6, grew to 39 and now have 400 school pupils.!
Frontline F and ACTS are committed to supporting Haiti’s efforts to improve access to quality basic education. Our ACTS school in Haiti has made a difference to lives.
We are providing education for 400 children in our school that we are sponsoring. We have established an English class in the school that will provide for a great opportunity for each child’s future. ACTS is paying for the teachers, food and for the school supplies that help to provide the education for these 100 children.
We are in construction of another school that will help a community in Laffiteau. This will provide a great education, healthy meals and much needed medical care for the neglected and poor children that would otherwise not have this opportunity provided to them. This will help to reduce or eliminate the cycle of poverty in the lives of the children in this community. This is how you can help. Just $35 can send one of our children to school for a month to give an education and a future.
Students come to school each day and then return home to live with their families. We have outstanding teachers who create an incredible learning environment for each child. Student sponsorship is $35 per month. Your sponsorship provides a quality education and the following:
- School uniforms
- Teachers & Administrative salaries
- School supplies
We need your help. Your donation of $1.16 per day changes a life forever.
Our amazing partners ACTS have set up this sponsorship programme to change a life forever.
