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!

Working Women in Haiti

Tensions with the Dominican Republic regarding the status of Haitian workers there affect the small traders called “Madam Saras” who cross the border to bring vital goods home to Haiti. This is the kind of small commercial enterprise that feeds families and pays school bills in our area. Its restriction imposes great hardship on the people who depend on this food and merchandise for their livelihoods.  Read about the Madam Saras here.
