Promise for Haiti believes that education provides hope for a better future! We support the operation of nine primary Christian schools that have feeding programs and scholarships. Promise for Haiti has partnered with Comite Bienfaisance de Pignon to build and operate nine Primary Christian Schools in the Pignon area. Schools have been built in rural and remote areas outside of Pignon in villages where students otherwise would not have a chance to attend school. Each school has seven classrooms and a teacher/principal room where supplies can be stored, a cookhouse to prepare meals, a well for drinking water and a latrine. In any given year, there are between 1,500 to 2,000 students enrolled in these primary schools. Scholarships for students who cannot afford tuition are available through the Haitian Education and Literacy Program. To find out more about sponsoring a student see below. Each of the nine primary schools supported by the Comite Bienfaisance/Promise for Haiti are provided meals for all the students. The meal, consisting of rice and beans or pasta, may be the only meal the students have that day. When students have proper nourishment, their concentration improves, retention of information increases and they tend to be in school more consistently. The cost to feed an entire school (250-300 students) for the year is only $7,100 (that's around 11¢ to 14¢ a meal!). Sponsor a school today!
