The KONEKTE teacher salary fund is essential in providing a continuity of education to the children of College Mixte Marius Carnold. Many families cannot afford to pay even a few dollars a month in tuition leading to frequent absenteeism and high drop out rates. The average Haitian child spends less than 4 years in school. Secondary school attendance is below 30%. Haiti has the highest illiteracy rates in the Western Hemisphere.
Most schools in Haiti are private and require tuition making it extremely difficult for many families to keep their children in school. Education is a priority for Haitian families and children frequently walk as much as an hour to get to school. They also need money for books and uniforms.
A teacher is paid between $150 and $200 a month.
