Our Children

Children accepted into our education sponsorship program understand the benefits that an education can provide but, due to the tough economic circumstances in Haiti, are unable to afford the minimum costs of tuition and fees required to attend public school. After submitting an application, they are evaluated by one of our in-country coordinators and must be approved by a member of the Haitian Roots Board of Directors before they are accepted to our program. For $300/year (or $25/month) you help a child attend school -- an opportunity taken for granted by most of us. To the children (and their families) in our sponsorship program, receiving an education means hope for the future and an opportunity to break the cycle of poverty. You can change the life of one of these precious children by becoming a sponsor today!

If you give a man a fish he is hungry again in an hour. If you teach him to catch a fish you do him a good turn.

Bonjou! I'm John Mike. My birthday is 3 September 2005. I live with my mom and dad and my brother, John Quincy Adams Fleury. My favorite subject in school is Spanish. I think it would be awesome to learn about computers and coding and become some kind of computer engineer one day.

Hello! I'm Densley. I was born 12 April 2007. I really enjoy school. I like math, geology, Kreyol, science, and history. I think I'd like to become an engineer one day. When I'm at home I just study, sleep, and work. Sometimes I play soccer with my friends. I am quiet at school and my teachers say that I don't like to talk much.
