Non-existent infrastructure, the lack of jobs, and the low level of revenue are some of the realities faced by the majority of Haiti’s population. This reality contributes to increased juvenile delinquency, social crime, and prostitution. In order to address these problems and the needs of the community, the Foundation’s support has expanded to include programs aimed at supporting and increasing education.
Child Sponsorship Program
School enrollment and the quality of education in Saint Rock are alarmingly low. According to Dr. Eloy, SRHF Medical Director, over 50% of preschool age children do not attend school. The Educational Sponsorship Program began in 2005 with one child’s educational costs. The program now supports more than 120 children, who otherwise would not be able to afford the cost of tuition, uniforms, and books.
It is a part of our mission at SRHF to promote the importance of education to children and their families. Our hope is that in providing the financial support needed for families to keep their children enrolled in school, many of the children in Saint Rock will develop the skills and knowledge that will enable them to lift themselves out of poverty.
For $20 a month, you can sponsor a child in Saint Rock. With that $20, a sponsored child can pay their monthly tuition and help provide their family with extra food for an entire month.
