187 Primary Program Students

This year we offered scholarships to 187 children from pre-kindergarten to sixth grade. Along with tuition fees, the scholarship covers the cost of children’s uniforms and books as well. Students that do well in the program automatically advance to the next grade. There is a 90% chance that a child will enter the program in kindergarten and leave the program with a bachelor’s degree or technical school certificate.

This year we have 52 students in our university program. These students attend 12 different universities in Port-au-Prince, depending on their field of study. Most bachelor degrees require 4 or 5 years of study, except medicine which is 6 to 7 years. After their course work most degrees require an internship year before graduation. The scholarship program covers full tuition and gives each student a living expense stipend.

The new Education Center, our permanent domain in Deschapelles, Haiti, offers an inspiring space for our administrative staff to work with our scholarship students. Educators in the region use the bright classrooms as a gathering ‘hub’ in which to share ideas.
