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 Lehi and I was born in 2014. My teachers say I'm a very calm little boy and I'm wise beyond my years. I want to be a doctor when I grow up.

Bonjou! I'm Abdul. My birthday is 10 Aug 2004. I live with my parents. My favorite subject in school is Spanish. I hope to become a doctor one day. When I'm at home I like to study as much as I can so that I can do well with my schooling and graduate some day.

Hi! My name is Laura. I just started school in 2018 as a first year kindergarten student. I am 3 years old. My favorite part of school is when we sing and dance together.
