According to USAID, over half the population live on less than $1 per day, and about 80 percent live on less than $2 per day.
Nearly a third of the Haitian population is food insecure. Poverty and food insecurity have placed the highest burden on young children and women in terms of undernutrition and micronutrient deficiencies.
Malnourished children are more susceptible to disease and, as a result, less likely to perform well in school. Many parents struggle to pay school fees and provide enough food to feed their families.
150 children registered and ready to begin school on September 7th. Would you please consider partnering with us to provide education and food to the children? A recurring monthly amount of $20 or one-time amount of $240 will provide an education and hot meal (daily) for one student. Your partnership will also provide student and teacher/staff uniforms, books, school supplies and bonuses for the teachers/staff.
If you choose to partner with Breath of Life Haiti, it is important that you know we are considering you a partner rather than sponsor. You won’t be “paired” with a specific child like some organizations do, but rather considered a partner that is making an impact on 150 children, 1 principle, 11 teachers and 3 cooks.
As a partner, you will be emailed a monthly newsletter on the 15th of each month with stories, photos, videos and updates on the children, teachers, staff and school. Each newsletter will include fun facts, recipes and/or activities that you can share with your children. What a great way to get your children or grandchildren involved!?
