COLLEGE SAINT BARTHÉLÉMY
The average Haitian has an 8th grade education or less. For women, this number can be as low as half.
St. Barthélémy works to remediate this statistic by educating over 1,000 children a year, from pre-K to grade 13. Some of Haiti’s most vulnerable children receive a quality education and religious instruction here, which provides a way out of poverty and into a better life. Graduates from St. Barthélémy, many of whom score higher than 90% on their national exams, have the opportunity to continue their education by attending university.
In addition to education, children attending St. Barthélémy receive...
... access to free medical care at Clinique Espérance et Vie. Students and their families have access to medicine and lab tests which are often not accessible or affordable to the average Haitian.
...a hot meal to students daily, fighting against food insecurity and providing students with the energy and nutrition they need to learn.
St. Barthélémy is a modern facility that has running water and sanitation to prevent the spread of infectious and parasitic diseases. It also has electricity and internet access which enhances the educational experience and provides greater opportunities for these children to learn. Your sponsorships make all these things possible!
St. Barthélémy also plays an important role in the economy of Terrier Rouge. The school employs close to 100 teachers, cooks, administrators, and staff. It provides sustainable jobs and income for people of the local community and surrounding areas. Teachers at St. Barts also benefit from additional training at seminars throughout the year. This helps them personally and professionally and directly benefits the quality of education received by the students.
Sponsorship is an investment in the future of Haiti.
For less than a dollar a day ($300/year) you can provide a child with food, education, and healthcare!
