Our purpose is to close the education gap in Haiti. The Haitian Educational System yields the lowest total rate in education realm of the western hemisphere. By financially sponsoring children to attend school, we would be giving them an opportunity to focus on their studies and become the best they can be without worrying about paying tuition.
The mission of Education for Haiti Inc. is to create pathways to assist children in achieving their educational and personal goals despite socioeconomic status.
We strive to close the education gap and make futures possible for the children in Haiti through financial sponsorship. By empowering children to embrace learning, they will achieve their personal best and build their emotional, social and physical well-being.
