CATCH THE VISION. ANSWER THE CALL. GIVE TO CHILDREN. REAP THE BENEFITS.
The Haitian government requires children at the elementary level to attend school. However, parents are responsible for the tuition, books and other costs. According to Haiti Partners (haitipartners.org):
- 50% of Haitian children are enrolled in school
- One-third of girls over six never go to school.
- More than 50 % of children attending school are overaged
- Approximately 30% of children attending primary school will not make it to third grade;
- 60% will abandon school before sixth grade
- Approximately 75% of all teachers lack adequate training; many have just a 9th grade or 12th grade education, with no teacher training at all.
- 9% of the population is unable to read or write, as compared to only 12% illiteracy in the rest of Latin America.
In rural areas like Mare Blanche the statistics are more depressed.
