To our members,
supporters, and visitors,
Please, pass it on!
The 2009 – 2010 School Year is underway in Haiti. And, in the poorest country of our hemisphere, parents are short of options to finance the education of their children. Expensive tuition and school supplies may cause many pupils to sit out and stay home, because of their parents’ inability to meet the financial obligations linked to their children education. In hurricanes ravaged Haiti, the 2009 – 2010 School Year is particularly onerous and problematic for parents facing any segment of the educational spectrum, from kindergarten to higher learning. Having been deceived once again by a government that refuses to pay the yearly bonus pay they are owed, public servants have an especially hard time sending their kids to schools. Without help from charitable organizations like the Haitian Consortium, hundreds of thousands of Haitian children will miss out on opportunities for learning, this year.
Last year’s damaging hurricanes added to the brutal and devastating consequences of a worldwide economic recession that has sent unemployment soaring to levels unseen since the depression of the 1930’s. Facing an economic meltdown, higher unemployment, famine and poor health, Haitian parents are reeling and have no one and nowhere to turn to, except to their more fortunate brothers and sisters in the Haitian Diaspora. With your help, and ready to meet this challenge, is the Haitian Consortium Partnership to Support Education in Haiti.
Last year, on the heels of the devastating hurricanes, the Haitian Consortium delivered tens of thousands of school supplies: required books, notebooks, pens, pencils, schoolbags, etc. to thousands of pupils in Haiti, and while providing full scholarships to hundreds. Your love and generosity made it possible. So, with your help and commitment, we will do even more in this School Year 2009 – 2010. So, let’s do it again!
