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.

My name is Benjamin. I am 10 years old and the second of five children (born in 2009). I go to the Haitian Roots Academy with three of my brothers. My teachers say that I have a great personality!


Patricia Tollin

Hi, I'm Patricia. I am in 10th grade this year (2019-20). My favorite subjects in school are math and French. I like to sing as well. I would love to one day be some sort of a diplomat and be able to study in other countries and travel.
