At Risk Children Foundation – Save the Kids’ is changing the Life of Those with No Hope

Combating Poverty… 

One Classroom at a Time !
Although education is “free” in Haiti, only half of all children are enrolled in primary school. This is because 92% of schools are private, leaving most families unable to pay school fees. In addition, the prohibitive cost of uniforms, books and other school materials make them unaffordable to many. The average yearly cost to send a child to school is estimated at $550.00 in urban areas and $330.00 in the countryside. This includes enrolment fees, Tuition, uniforms, books, shoes, and all other supplies. These costs are impossible for nearly 80% of all Haitian families, and render school as unattainable. In response to this, since 2004, ARCF has partnered with existing community leaders – schools to overcome some of these varied challenges.
