EDUCATION IS A KEY TO ending poverty
If all students in low income countries left school with basic reading skills, 171 million people could be lifted out of poverty, which would be equivalent to a 12% cut in world poverty.1
In the rural area of Haut de St. Marc, Haiti, Rayjon has been working to reduce poverty, build community capacity and improve quality of life for over 32 years. The Pinson school, way up in the mountains, provides quality education from preschool to grade 8, with of total enrollment of over 200 kids per year! The school is literally bursting at the seams.
In this remote, mountainous area, few children stay in school beyond elementary school. Secondary school begins at grade 7, but the closest high school is in the city− much too far away and much too expensive for most families. With the support of generous donors in Canada, Rayjon was pleased to offer grade 7 & 8 at the Pinson school in 2017, and this year we will add the first ever Grade 9 class at the Pinson school!
Your donation of $50 will allow one child in rural Haiti to attend elementary school.
THE COST OF EDUCATION:
The Pinson school relies on a combination of foreign and local support. Families contribute about 33% of the operating costs of the schools by paying very affordable tuition fees, and by donating their time and skills to help maintain the buildings.
