Backpacks and school sponsorship

It is that time of year again.  We are busy each week meeting with children from the school sponsorship program.  They come with their report cards from the past year and get pictures taken for the sponsors.  We are gearing up for this coming school year.  They are a few ways you can help us with this need.

1.  We need to purchase backpacks for all the kids for this coming year.  We can purchase backpacks here in Haiti at a good price from local merchants.  We would like to raise $900 to be able to purchase backpacks for 150 children.   Each of these children are on the program because their parents are unable to afford their schooling cost for them for the year.  It is a blessing to be able to help so many families in our area.  If you would like to help with this need please use the paypal button in the upper right hand corner of the blog or mail donation into our home office Real Hope for Haiti/P.O. Box 23/Elwood, IN 46036 include a memo or note letting us know it is for “backpacks“.  If you have any questions please email  licia@realhopeforhaiti.org

2.  We are looking for those that are interested in sponsoring a child.  The cost this year is $300 per child for the whole school year.  This covers books, uniform, and the school fees.  The fee can be given monthly, in portions or as a one time gift.  If you are interested in sponsoring a child you can email licia@realhopeforhaiti.org for more information. If you would like to help with this need please use the paypal button in the upper right hand corner of the blog or mail donation into our home office Real Hope for Haiti/P.O.
