THE STORY:

One of the few things the country of Haiti isn't short of is grim statistics. Before the earthquake, three out of every four Haitians lived below the poverty line on less than $2 per day. Malnutrition kills one child every day. Over half the adult population is unemployed, and one in three has no access to basic healthcare. Even though, we will not be able to address every problem facing the country of Haiti, we can, however, reverse the course of illiteracy in Haiti and reduce the number of potential drop out estimated at 2.25 million young lives. We need to build St. Francis De Sales Academy and we need your help to do that.

A school such as St. Francis De Sales Academy is critical to Haiti’s educational development. 40% of Haiti’s population of over nine million people is school-age children. However, one in four children did not attend school prior to the catastrophic earthquake. UNICEF, estimated more than 3,000 schools buildings in the earthquake zone has been destroyed or damaged. In western Haiti alone 1,236 schools out of 4,716 were destroyed. The limited number of schools in this impoverished nation also meant that over 2.25 million people will drop out of school thereby closing the door of opportunity. We all know that education is the cornerstone of individual and community success and is fundamental to economic prosperity. So we must attempt to foster opportunities for education. Someone once said, “Education teaches human being the most essential survival tool. Resourcefulness: Resourceful people makes things happen.” Make a difference today
