Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world” Nelson Mandela
Last year, One Vision One World was able to provide educational sponsorships to 60 children who are part of Chance for Children's feeding program in Latapi.
Chances for Children currently works in 12 rural church communities in Haiti. In many of our rural locations, families have no means of income. They live off the land and provide for their families by their gardens and livestock. They do not earn enough income to pay for school registration, uniforms, books and monthly tuition. There is no public (free) education system in Haiti. C4C operates feeding programs and mobile medical clinics in these rural locations. Most of the children in these communities are not able to attend school because their parents can’t afford to send them to school. The cost per child to attend school is:
$20 for books and school supplies (60 students =$1,200)
$30 for 2 school uniforms (60 students =$1,800)
$10 per month for tuition ($90 per year 60 students =$5,400)
School Administrator (new position $50/month) – oversight, teacher certification, communication
Total Cost per child of $150 to attend school in Latapi the school will be held at the Church. It is an elementary, 1 house school room for children between the ages of 6-12.
One Vision One World has gone to Haiti on two mission trips and thus far we've been able to accomplish the following:
1. Construction of a home for orphans in Archaie, Haiti
2. School supplies for 600 children
3. Shoes and clothing for 290 children
4. Toothpaste, toothbrushes and diapers for an orphanage in Kenscoff, Haiti.
We hope to accomplish a lot more and with your help give the Haitian children what they need to turn their dreams into reality!
