For $40 per month, you can sponsor a student at the Grace Divine School and ensure that the student has tuition covered, receives a uniform, all necessary books and materials, a Bible, daily lunch, and that the teachers have the materials and supplies they need to effectively teach.
Why is this important?
- Primary school enrollment is only about 75% across Haiti, and the average Haitian 25 years or older has less than 5 years of actual schooling. *
- 85% of primary schools are overseen by non-governmental organizations (NGOs), churches, communities, etc. There is minimal government oversight and support, so tuition is required to have funds to operate. *
- Because the average Haitian lives on roughly $2 per day, tuition for children is often cost prohibitive. *
