Student Sponorships

       Education is the key to helping our brothers and sisters in Haiti.  For a contribution of $360 a year, you can ensure that a young Haitian child has the chance to go to school.  In addition you give the child  clothes and uniforms, school supplies and a hot meal every day. 

       Currently we sponsor more than two hundred children in the primary and secondary schools run by St. James Parish.  We also sponsor students as they continue their education at colleges and technical schools.  Several people have also taken on the challenge of bringing students from Haiti to continue their education here in the United States.  The goal is to give them technical expertise so that they can use their education to help the people of the Plaine du Nord area when they return to Haiti after graduation.
