Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world
Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world. — Nelson Mandela

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!

Lunch isn't Automatic - The Children Heritage Foundation (tCHF)
Lunch is not automatic …

Just think about this for a moment; every day, many children go to school on an empty stomach, which makes it hard to focus on their class work. Getting lunch on a daily basis ensures for overall health, as well as success in education. The parents are thankful when we can provide such help.

In order to sustain this essential program, we need continued assistance from individuals and corporate partners alike. Please consider helping us in this area, you will be investing in the growth of a child and the future of a community. It is easy; just click on donate on our website and give for that purpose. We are looking forward to your partnership.

Thank you!

Back to School Luncheon

The tCHF back-to-school luncheon was a great success last Sunday at Monmouth Worship Center in Marlboro, NJ. Many people joined us to hear reports about our programs and to learn about the effort in Haiti. In addition to great food and fellowship time – we also shared videos of our Digital literacy lab and heard testimonies from some of the children in the 7th, 8th and 9th grades on how the computer program is helping them with their studies and preparing them for the future. We are thankful to God.

Hurricane - The Children Heritage Foundation (tCHF)
The Emotional Impact of a Hurricane

The Directors of the school in Haiti recently shared with us that many of the children were traumatized by the damage caused by Hurricane Matthew.

They exhibit symptoms such as withdrawal, depression, that are commonly associated with post-traumatic stress disorder. The children are also very concerned about the fate of their parents, friends and their community. This has impacted their ability to learn and, to focus on their studies. They are now questioning why such events continue in Haiti?, why do they lose people that are dear to them? fearing that those people may disappear at any time in their lives. They are constantly afraid of being left alone.

In Haiti; children are expected to be resilient but, they are only children; plagued by major events, living in fear and, anxiety. No child should have to go through such events without the proper emotional support. The Directors are doing an awesome job to keep everyone focused but, they are in need of a psychologist who can lend a hand to help the children back to emotional health.

The school building was not damaged during the hurricane, it was used as a shelter for many in the community during and following the storm. The children will return to school in September. Being in school will give them a sense of security. We are thankful to God for His mercy.

If you are aware of anyone who may be able to help us address this specific need for the children please let us know or pass on our contact details. We thank you for your continuing partnership and prayers.

tCHF InFocus – school meals…

Every day, many children across Haiti show up in school on an empty stomach.  This makes it hard for them to focus on learning.

A daily meal not only improves the overall health of the children, but also helps them excel in their education.   Please help us in this crucial area.
