At the heart of tCHF’s continuing mission to the children of Haiti lies the conviction that education is a basic human right. Every child wherever he or she may be has a right to learn. We believe that education is a sound investment that transforms lives and builds better communities.
Haiti’s education system faces an array of challenges that have only been exacerbated by extreme poverty and natural threats such as the 2010 earthquake and most recently; the 2016 Hurricane Matthew.
”Additional years of schooling will boost a nation’s GDP. If every adult completed a secondary education, world poverty would be cut by more than half, according to UNESCO.”
As we embark on a new school year. Thanks to each of you for sharing our belief that education is crucial. There is a lot more work to be done. Please share the tCHF mission and vision with your colleagues, friends and family. Despite the gains, a remarkable number of Haitian children and adolescents are still out of school, missing out on the education they need to reach their full potential. Let’s get kids back to school!
