Class is in session!
4HNYC was beyond pleased to receive pictures from The Children of Haiti Project’s book bag distribution. A special thanks goes out to all of our supporters for their continuous support and generosity. As a result of your kindness, 4HNYC was able to sponsor 200 Kenbe La students in Port-au-Prince and Leogane, Haiti. Each student received a book bag filled with school supplies for the 2014-2015 school year.
Statistics tells us that 50% of primary school age children in Haiti are not enrolled in school, approximately 30% of children attending primary school will not make it to third grade, and 60% will abandon school before sixth grade. Currently, 37.9% of the Haitian population is unable to read or write (the rest of Latin America has a 12% illiteracy rate).
We at 4HNYC believe that every child deserves a chance to succeed regardless of their economical state. Thank you for also believing in our vision. We wish all of the students in Haiti a prosperous and successful academic year. Happy learning.
Kenbe La—- Never Give Up!
