Every child deserves an education
Donating to our teacher salary fund ensures that children at College Mixte Marius Carnold can stay in school regardless of their ability to pay. A teacher earns a mere $150 to $200 a month. We fund construction projects at CMMC and La Reference de Ganthier and support enrichment programs such as art, music and sport.
90% of schools in Haiti are private. For the more than 50% of families living in poverty, education for their children is an expense they cannot afford. As well as tuition they need to pay for uniforms and books. Many children miss days, even weeks at a time due to lack of money for fees, food or both. Many children are not in their age appropriate class, more than half leave before 6th grade and a mere 30% attend high school. Illiteracy rates in Haiti are the highest in Latin America and the Caribbean.
