School sponsorship provides an excellent education to children whose families cannot afford the costs of tuition, books and uniforms. Sponsored children receive a high quality education at our safe, well-constructed school campus, Institution Mixte Karen Huxter (IMKH). In order to help our students achieve their full potential, all students receive a high nutrition drink that provides vitamins, minerals and healthy amino acids at recess. In addition, students are given a healthy, balanced hot meal at the end of the school day.
It costs only $300 per year or $25 per month to sponsor a student from preschool to grade 6. Secondary school sponsorship is $420 per year or $35 per month.
Your sponsorship provides funding for your student’s basic school fees, plus all required textbooks and material for school uniforms (The nutritional support program is covered by separate fundraising initiatives). In order to encourage a sense of responsibility and commitment, parents are responsible for their child’s registration fee.
All sponsors receive a photo of their sponsor child and a letter or drawing from their student. Sponsor student photos and letters are sent via email in late November / early December of each year. Sponsors who travel to Haiti have the opportunity to meet and spend time with their sponsor child.
Hands Across the Sea has many success stories of children that have been sponsored through school. Here is a very special story of one our earliest school sponsorships, Roseline Joachim’s Story.
