of poor children in Haiti
The literacy rate in Haiti for those over 15 years of age is 61% and one in four children is not in school. In the rural communities where we work, access to schools can be difficult for children, especially secondary schools. Where schools are close, fees often prevent students from attending.
Hope for Haitians has provided uniforms, school supplies, transportation, meal programs, and tuition aid to many student. In addition efforts have been made to assist vocational students learning trades that will brighten not only their futures but the future of the villages where they live.
This Year – A School
Working in partnership with another nonprofit serving one of the villages where we work, our goal from this year’s Fun Bun Run is to raise the funds needed to build a school.
All funds above that amount will be used to support education for the children of that village.
Convenient local 5K for for runners and walkers in St. Charles, Geneva and Batavia IL. Also close for Chicago, West Chicago, Aurora and Elgin IL Residents. Come join us at the Fun Bun Run!
