By law, education is free for Haitian children; in practice, access is sharply limited by school location, language comprehension, cost of school clothes and supplies, and the availability of teachers. Only about 50 percent of the school-aged children actually attend. As a consequence of limited educational opportunities, only 53 percent of the adult population is literate. This is why Crossroads partners with Pastor Carlo to make a difference in the lives of the children of Haiti by making education available to everyone.
By providing a one time financial gift of any amount, you can make a difference in the future of a Haitian student.
