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.

Hello. My name is Mike. I am in 2nd grade at the Haitian Roots Academy (2016-17). I enjoy being able to go to school every day. I like learning math. I think I would like to become an attorney some day. When I'm not at school I'm always working. Maybe some day I can go to Brazil because they have the best soccer team.
Hello. My name is Sendy. My birthdate is 1 June 2000. I am behind in school but the teachers at HRA are working hard to help me get caught up. I live with my aunt.

Isberta was born 14 Nov 2007. She just began Haitian Roots Academy. One of Haitian Roots coordinators brought her to the school with her father and sisters just after her mother died. The coordinator said that her father desperately needs help to try to raise them. We're grateful they came to Haitian Roots Academy! But they need sponsors to be able to continue. Thank you.
