Access to education is one of the best ways to impact society and move people out of poverty.
Local children are able to attend our school for a small fee. They are provided with quality education, supported by the ‘Teacher development Institute’ and with a hot lunch every day.
We have also started a scholarship program for students graduating from high school to further their education. In order for students to qualify for the scholarship program, they need to submit an application.
The H2H children’s home is comprised of children from various locations in Haiti. Many of the children have a mom or dad, but due to extenuating circumstances they are either unable to provide for them, or there are no educational opportunities in the area that they are from.
At H2H these children are provided with a safe place to stay, education, nutritious meals, access to basic medical care.
Given that the children’s stay with us is temporary (as they move out once they have graduated), it is important for them to learn life skills necessary in Haiti. As a result, the children are taught personal & collective responsibility, and life skills such as washing clothes, cooking, etc.
Looking after our neighbours in the community is very important to us. We recognize that the children go back out into the community and we want to ensure that we continue to support and encourage each other. As a result, we often do food hampers and provide mobile medical clinics when we have teams join us.
