Help send a Haitian child to secondary school.

Haiti has the lowest rate of school enrollment in the Western Hemisphere.The percentage of children who complete primary school is low (50%), and sadly, only 20% of Haitian girls receive a secondary education (grades 7-13). In a country where the average family makes only $2 a day, most families cannot afford to pay over $100 to send a child to school. Decades of natural disasters and political turmoil have depleted the country of an educated workforce. As a result, few teachers in Haiti receive formal training. Without a secondary education, a young Haitian is unable to find a good job or attend college. And so the cycle of poverty continues.

In response to the educational crisis in Haiti, GreaterGood.org's GROW (Girls Right to Opportunity Worldwide) program is providing support to build a quality high school in Haiti. The Lekol Kominote Matenwa (LKM) secondary school will be an extension of an existing, internationally acclaimed primary school located in Matenwa, Haiti. LKM has been designated as a model school by the Haitian Ministry of Education.

You can help. With your donation, a young Haitian boy or girl will get the opportunity to receive a quality secondary education. Every donation will go toward books, tuition, and a teacher's salary.
