SPONSOR A STUDENT
Give The Gift Of A Future
HaitiChildren operates a tuition-free K-6 school on the grounds of the HaitiChildren Village in Williamson called the Learning Academy. 65 of our own children who were abandoned by their parents attend the school along with 285 students from the surrounding villages. Some of these children walk 1.5 hours each way to attend school. The school is a safe environment that provides an exceptional education, a free hot lunch, health care and fresh, free, clean drinking water for their families.
Please help these students attend school by sponsoring one or more students. For $30 per month, you can provide one year’s worth of education for each student you sponsor. Once you sponsor a student you will receive his/her photo and their story. You will also receive a letter from your student(s) in December of each year for an update on their educational and personal progress.
If you are interested in hosting a student sponsorship event for the Learning Academy, please contact our office on 970 925 6520.
Please meet some of our students and please help them lift themselves up through an excellent education:
