Micro Credit in Education

Haiti has one of the Highest illiteracy and lowest school enrollment rates in the Caribbean Region, primarily due to the high cost of attending school which prevent many rural and urban families from receiving an education. We strongly believe that a good education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty and can create a better future for Children, Young People and their families. That is why Queensland Foundation for Children, Health and Education promote education in each of the Communities by facilitating sponsorship for thousands of Haitian students who otherwise would not have a chance to attend. When QFCHE invite you to sponsor a student, QFCHE is inviting you to invest in the future of Haiti, one Child at a time.

How sponsorship works

For each Haitian student in the program we provide Cost of enrollment fees, requisite school materials, supplies and uniforms Regular monitoring of school work and progress by Families Social Worker Access to the Queensland Foundation Children University Hospital
