dscn0090Education in Haiti represents a heavy financial burden on many poor families, especially in rural Haiti. The average yearly cost to send a child to school in Haiti is $330.00. This includes enrollment fees, tuition, uniforms, books, shoes, and all other supplies. This fee eliminates all poor children from attending.

• $92.00 Provides: ( 2 sets of uniforms-school shoe, socks.
• $70-to 100.00 Provides: Annual tuition (depend on the Grade)
• $40.00 Provides: school supplies, backpack
• $100.00 Provides: Books, notebooks, and a pair of sneakers.

As a result, an estimated 600,000 children are illiterate. To prevent the flow of children into child domestic servitude. For the last 8 years ARCF schooling ministry, has partnered at five Faith-based schools to overcome some of these varied challenges. These schools: Ecole La Jemmerais– Les Soeurs De la Charité de St-Hygniace– Ecole Homo Sapians– Centre de Formation de Cavaillon- Institution Chretienne de Siloe, provides full tuition for 150 students including all accessories and support of a home-group foster parents with food, and other necessities.

A recreational pavilion was built to serve the youth, the community and visitors on the 2 1/2 acres of land granted to ARCF by local authorities; this site is to build the  Soveyo School Learning Center. Today, Custine, has become a much healthier village, and the community rejoices.

We believe that a focus on Education is the best gift that we can give to the children and young adults. Haiti’s greatest resource is the youth of tomorrow! We are determined to lend a hand to help the children of Haiti rise out of poverty, not through charity but through education.
