Education 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 average $500.00 US dollars, or more, including enrollment fees, tuition, uniforms, books, shoes, and all other supplies.

This fee eliminates all poor children from attending. Your donation of

  • $92.00 Provides: (2 sets of uniforms-school shoe, socks.
  • $100.00 to 150.00 Provides: Annual tuition (depend on the Grade)
  • $80.00 Provides: school supplies, backpack
  • $150.00 Provides: Books, notebooks, jerseys, and a pair of sneakers.

As a result, an estimated 600,000 children are illiterate. To prevent the flow of children into restavek , (child labor) we have partnered with faith-based and community schools to overcome some of these varied challenges, providing full tuition for students including all their accessories and other necessities.

We also built a recreational pavilion to serve the youth, the community and visitors on the 2 ½ acres of land granted to ARCF by local authorities.

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.
