Bonjou tout moun! My name is Jennifer Roth. I am a veteran educator in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. For the past 6 years my daughter Zoe and I have been traveling to Haiti. I have spent many hours learning how to help without hurting and establish and foster relationships with my " Haitian Peeps". One thing that has come up over and over again is that education is the key to success. Unlike in the US, school is not free and not only do Haitians have to pay tuition, but also for a uniform, books, and any school supplies needed. The cost depending on school for all of this is about $500 per child which is simply unfeasible to the average Haitian family!
I have been successful in sending several children to school and seeing them graduate from high school, find work, as well as continue with higher education.
This year, I am trying to send five students to school, 3 girls and 2 boys, grades 3rd-university!
I fundraise by selling soup each Fall to help offset some of the costs, but each year, I seem to add more children to my" Haitian education" plate! If you are able, any amount would be greatly apprecaited. My goal is to raise $3000 by September 15th.
MEET THE FUTURE OF HAITI!
