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 these school supplies and a one time gift of $25, you can make a difference in the future of a Haitian student.
Once you have purchased the supplies below, they can be dropped off at the church. Supplies must be sealed into a plastic bag. The children of Haiti would also like to pray for you. Please include your name along with a prayer request in the bag!
- colored pencils
- solar calculator
- pencil case (soft)
- toothbrush & toothpaste
- pencil sharpener
- 1 pair of flip flops (any size)
Please do not include your check with the supplies.
Checks for $25 should be made out to CCM World Missions and be marked “Haiti School Box.” ($7 pays for shipping, $18 goes for items the student may need, e.g.. shoes, clothing, food.)
Checks can be placed in an offering basket or mailed to:
