Education in Haiti

  • Almost all schools in Haiti are privately run (~80%) and require monthly tuition fees, a barrier for many children to attend school (per World Bank report).

  • The average cost of tuition in Haiti is $80-100 per child per year, not including books, school uniforms and transport (per Global Partnership for Education report). Note: Many schools in Bon Repos have tuition fees exceeding the Haiti average cost/month.

  • Children are often forced into alternatives to school, such as domestic servitude, child labor, or life in the streets. It is estimated that 300,000 Haitian children are working as domestic servants, approximately 80% of whom are girls under 14 years of age. Education is central to providing these children a way to improve their lives. (per UNICEF report)


What We've Achieved

  • 49 children are currently being sponsored

  • Allows families to send their children to school on a regular basis. Children don't miss days or months of school due to shortage of funds.

  • 3 and 4 years olds are exposed to preschool. Some of these children would likely not get to be in a learning environment until they are 5 or 6 years old. 

  • Jou Nouvo encourages children and families to focus on education and make it a priority for the future.  

  • Sponsored children love exchanging letters with the sponsors. 

  • Sponsored children and their families love it when they get to meet their sponsor.

  • Jou Nouvo encourages group, community, and family activities that promote reading and writing.
