Haitian Educational Initiatives

Donate Now to Send Kids to School

Now in our fourth year, HEI is supporting 110 scholarships for impoverished children who would otherwise have no access to education. We need $16,500 every year in order to register the kids in local schools, purchase their uniforms and shoes, and provide them with the backpacks, books and school supplies they need. This averages only $150 per child for a year of education.

You’ll Make a Big Difference

That year of schooling will hake a huge difference to the children's chances of survival and ability to support themselves. The nutrition they get will strengthen them again malnutrition and disease. Girls will delay pregnancy and be better mothers when they start their families.

We've Had Proven Success

In the three years we’ve been operating in Jacmel, 99% of our students have completed their school year and 86% have been promoted to the next grade. That’s an amazing accomplishment in a country where only half the children attend school and of those, most drop out by the 5th grade.

Don't Wait!

Please make your tax-deductible donation now. Many thanks from all the children, parents, and staff in Haiti!

Consider This on #GivingTuesday!

50% of Haitian children have no access to education. Only half the country’s adults can read.

Tuesday, December 1 is #GivingTuesday, the national day of philanthropy. We hope you will take this opportunity to give the gift of education to a Haitian child who could not attend without your help. Education is the best way to change the world for the better and we are starting on America’s doorstep. Your donation to HEI will provide scholarships, food, after-school tutoring and job training to severely impoverished kids in Jacmel. We currently serve 185 children. Won’t you help us transform their lives – and over time, their country? CLICK HERE to support a child today! Thank you.
