Nutrition

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and ranks among the poorest countries of the developing world. Over 80% of the population is characterized as living below the poverty level.  Today nearly a third of the population is considered food insecure; of these 600,000 need external food assistance to survive. Currently, one in every 5 children suffers from chronic malnutrition, while more than half of women and children suffer from anemia.

In the rural area of Marbial we support over 100 children to attend elementary school.  We also have a nutrition program to give them their daily meal.  This meal helps them grow and learn and costs about 30 cents per child.  If you can help us with this cause please donate here.

Education

Only 50% of the children in Haiti attend school because their families do not have money to pay tuition or buy them school supplies and a uniform.  Children want to go to school and they want to learn but sadly, many are unable to go to school.


Also many of the children go to school hungry and that makes it hard for them to learn.  For $ 0.35 a day we feed 105 children in Marbial their daily meal.  We really need help and support to keep this program going. 


Tuition and supplies range from $30 per year for primary school, up to $100-$200 per year for high school. A year of university costs between $300 - $400.

We are also pleased to offer a goat program. Goats can be purchased for a family for $75, and each year they can sell the "kids" to pay for their children's education.


To donate money for education, please click here.  Go to DONATE ONLINE and Give to: Haiti Support. Our partner Southwood Church will direct your donation.


We are very privileged to have a Haitian coordinator who works tirelessly to bring hope to Haitians.  Maxeau Pierre, a law student living in Jacmel, coordinates our efforts from Haiti.  Maxeau delivers school supplies and tuition to villages, coordinates school sponsorship and teaches English and Technology.  In 2017 Maxeau opened his own Saturday school for children in his community.

Technology

Access to technology allows  youth to be connected with their world as well as prepare them for future careers.


We support by accepting refurbished laptops, tablets and phones to Haiti. We are fortunate to have Mr. Gabe as part of our group. Mr. Gabe takes the used laptops we collect and spends many hours getting them up and running for use in Haiti. In 2015, Mr. Gabe had the honour of having a computer lab at a school in Lavanneau named for him.


Each year we take about 60 laptops, plus phones and other technology to help students and schools.

Contact us to make donations of laptops or phones.

Sports

Kids just want to play sports to have fun and to compete. The government of Haiti does not fund many sports programs so many of the local youth leaders develop their own programs in their communities.  


We support by collecting donations of uniforms and equipment from local soccer clubs and taking them to help the soccer programs in Haiti.


To donate money for sports programs, please click here.  Go to DONATE ONLINE and Give to: Haiti Support. Our partner Southwood Church will direct your donation.

If you would like to donate soccer or other sports equipment please contact Dave.
