The American Haitian Foundation believes that education is key to empowering the people of Haiti to help themselves. After the completion of the school in 1998, the AHF needed to find a way to support the operation of the school; thus the Sponsor-A-Child idea was born.
Most children's families cannot afford to send them to school as the average annual income for someone in Haiti is $240 a year. The main reason that children in Petit Rivere are able to receive an education is because of other people's generosity.
For only $180 per year (plus more if they are boarding students), you can sponsor a child in Haiti and send him or her to school. Not only do they receive one of the best educations in the country, but they also are provided a uniform and are guaranteed one hot meal a day. For many of these children, this is the only meal they will eat each day.
As a sponsor, you will receive an information card about your sponsor child that includes a photo, the child's name and grade level.
