Education and Children Changing the World

Haitian Roots Schools

Haitian Roots Academy

We have partnered with Haitian Roots on three projects over the last three years to construct 3 buildings which house 16 classrooms and 2 toilet buildings to accompany the classrooms.

The last project recently completed has 10 classrooms, admin office, staff bathroom, kitchen, exterior student toilets, and new electrical wiring providing lights and outlets in each room. It is our biggest project to date since the original Villard school. The budget for this project was $65,000.

Changing Haiti’s future through education

Why education? Haiti is the poorest country in the West and it costs about $600/year for a child to attend school. However, the average family of 6 earns less than $500/year. When an individual is illiterate, they do not have the basic skills that a quality education offers and are often condemned to a life of poverty, ill health, and social exclusion. The good news is that education beats poverty. Children who attend school are not only healthier, better-nourished, and live more prosperous lives, but they become aware of their own potential in the world and are equipped with the life skills necessary to thrive in society.
