The school in Fonfrede, Haiti needs funds to pay teachers salaries. (Teachers in Haiti make about $75/month.) The young children attending the school arrive without lunch. You can feed that same child a good meal for 20 cents. The space where they have school is in need of repair and two classrooms are being added. The administration is asking that we join them in furthering educational opportunities for the community. We said “Yes! But it is reall up to good people like you to help make this happen.

Support one teacher for a month ($75)
Support one student for a year ($100)
Build a classroom, they need 2. ($2,500/each)

Other Long-Range Plans for Haitian Education in Fonfrede

“Our town needs a high school and another middle school. We currently only have one High School, and it is a public school, which means it’s not the best option for the children. We only have one school in the area that has a middle school. Our school currently goes to sixth grade with 282 students. They would love to add middle school and a high school in the next couple of years so that so many students would not have to travel far into town for a negative school experience, only because they do not have a closer option. We also have plans in Fonfrede for a career/skills center where young people who could not finish school because of finances can come learn a trade or skill (such as welding, carpentry, masonry, flooring, plumbing, mechanics, cooking, sewing, etc.) so that that can make a future for themselves, and hopefully their families.”
