Less than half of Haiti's school age children attend classes, primarily because in most areas public education is not readily available, and the cost of private education is far more than their parents can afford. Currently to educate one child takes almost half of a family's yearly income. VIP's efforts have made it possible for families to educate their children. Through contributions and monies raised for a variety of projects, VIP can offer more Haitian children the chance to receive an elementary and high school education, and take that first big step towards improving their lives.

Student Education Program

Due to the rising costs of needed school supplies in Haiti, Ventures in People, along with our education coordinator in Mirebalais, Louis Tenior Guerrier, has made the decision to add $15 a year to the cost of sponsoring a child in our program. Thus the cost for the 20-21 school year will be $175. This amount helps to pay a child’s entrance fee, uniform, books and supplies. If you have any questions, please contact one of us listed below.
