Young dreams sponsorship program
The literacy rate of Haitians over the age of 15 (about 62%), is the lowest percentage in the American continent. Most schools in Haiti are private and require tuition fees. For this reason, more than 200,000 children across the country remain out of school*, as families are not able to afford school for their children due to their low incomes. Many children also drop out of school and start working at a very young age to support their families. For this reason there is often a disparity between the students' ages and their grade level.
Dare Humanity believes education should be accessible to every child, no matter their circumstances, environment, ethnicity or economic status. More than 30% of the Haitian population is younger than 15 years old.* The opportunity of giving access to quality education to this new generation, could have a tremendous impact for the future development of Haiti.
With approximately 140 families in the community we support, we have established our Young Dreams Sponsorship Program to pay school tuition for youth in Haiti. This sponsorship pledge also benefits the children’s families and allows them to gain knowledge and skills to strengthen their communities.
Tuition per year varies between $50 to $180 and covers their school fees for the academic year.
We invite you to donate to sponsor the education of the future leaders of change in Haiti.
