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 at 970 925 6520.
Please meet some of our students and please help them lift themselves up through an excellent education:

Wooseleika is a smart girl, beautiful, and 4 years old. She is in the 1st year of preschool and lives in Fond Baptiste. She is the youngest of a large family of 7 children.
Before she was born, her mother swore that she no longer wanted to have children because of the economic situation that prevents her to take care of her children. When she knew that she was pregnant with Wooseleika, she did everything to naturally abort, because she could not afford to come to the city of Arcahaie to see a doctor. Her mother did finally have this princess.
Today, Wooseleika receives a very good free education at Learning Academy as well as a hot plate of food. She loves to dance and draw. She is good at collaborating with other students and always participates in all learning activities. Help this wonderful princess stay in this environment where she feels happy and is able to develop mentally, physically, and socially. Thank you for loving this child
