Less than half of all Haitian adults can read, and only three in four children attend primary school. By high school, that number drops to one in four. Despite the country's best of intentions, schools are often overcrowded, ill-equipped or non-existent. Hundreds of thousands of children live in poverty, unable to receive an education and create a better life for themselves.
WE Villages is committed to helping build and repair schools, train teachers, provide educational programing, and distribute school supplies, like solar lights.
WE Villages empowers change with resources that create sustainable impact. They help people in developing countries build up stable, thriving communities that give them the power and dignity to support themselves. For every $10 donation, one light goes to a child learning to read. And that little light brings with it not just solar power, but the power to help children grow physically and academically.
