The school year for most of the children in Haiti will start September 4th (our Labor Day Holiday). We recently received some communication from Pastor Francois with whom we partner in Pignon, Haiti, asking if we could help with the cost of school clothing (uniforms & shoes) and the cost of school enrollment (books, documents, school supplies, tuition).
The number of children Loving Haiti supports in the home has increased to 62, of which at least 51 are school aged (ranging from pre-school to college) and will be attending various schools in Pignon and Cap Haitien. Not all the children are currently attending school due to age, physical or mental capabilities. Other children are receiving vocational training through Madame Francois sewing center or receiving mechanic training like Phillip.
Uniforms – $2097 (classroom and outdoor activities)
Shoes – $1,525 (classroom and outdoor activities)
Enrollment – $10,510 ($206.07 average cost per enrollment)
Total = $14,132
Would you please consider this opportunity to help make “Back-to-School” a special day in the students’ lives from the Children’s Home?
Our Goal: $15,000 by August 31st.
My wife Jill and I will jump start this fundraiser by donating the first $1,000. If you are willing and able, please join us in making education a gift, so that all can “Learn to Love and Love to Learn”. Mesi`, mesi`.
