Aside from orphaned babies not having access to formula, another main reason many children are put in orphanages in Haiti is that their parents can not afford to send them to school. Seeking to give their children a chance at a better life, they place them in orphanages to ensure they at least get an education.
We believe that the lack of the ability to pay for education should never be the reason a child is separated from their family, and so we created the education sponsorship program. Created especially with the children who graduate out of the formula & foster program in mind, we come alongside families to assist in sending their child to school.
“A child without education is like a bird without wings.” -Tibetan proverb
Adonaïka was the first baby in our formula program & is the first child in our education sponsorship program. Haiti has 3 levels of kindergarten & she started level 1 in 2019 at 2.5 years old. She is a bright little girl & is learning by leaps & bounds!
