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.

Bonjour! I'm Akim. I'm 10 years old and live in one of the worst slums in the entire world--Cite Soleil. I am grateful for the chance to go to school. I am only in 1st grade so I am behind, but the teachers at HRA will help me to catch up!
Bonjou! I'm Velanda. I turned 4 this year (born 2012). I want to be a teacher when I grow up. When I am at home I am usually working. I like all foods. I love to dance. My favorite color is red. My teachers say that I am very very smart but they worry about me because I live with my aunt and we don't often have the basic clothing or things for me to come to school. But thanks to Haitian Roots, I at least have a chance.

Bonjou! I'm Gloria. My birthday is 7 December 2008. I live with my father. I work very hard in school. I love to learn. I want to become a doctor. I would love to travel to Brazil one day because I hear it is very beautiful.
Hello! I'm Betchina and am new to HRA. I'm in 8th grade (2016-17 school year). My birthday is 12 Sept 2003.
Hi. I'm Michellanda. I was probably born about 2011 but I have not been to school before and I'm not exactly sure. I live with my father. In school, I am enjoying learning how to speak French! My teachers say that I am wise for my age. I work a lot at school and at home. I would like to study medicine and become a nurse.
