Hebreux, french for Hebrew is very studious. In the evenings, you can always find him studying under a light. One thing we appreciate about him is he has taken careful consideration about what he wants to do with his future, ensuring that he will have a successful one. We are very excited that he has chosen to study agronomy, because growing the agricultural sector is huge need in Haiti. We look forward to seeing him use his knowledge to help farmers across the villages.
What is it?
The Primary/Secondary Education Scholarship Fund is dedicated to helping children receive their basic education through funding of educational expenses, such as tuition, books, examination & uniform costs. The school system in Haiti is separated by Primary (1st to 5th grade) and Secondary (6th to 13th grade) education. This scholarship fund will take into consideration, among many factors, the child’s family situation, family income and academic grades. We will provide follow up throughout the year to ensure families are sending their children to school and the students are passing their classes.
*It is common for students in Haiti to be older yet attending a lower grade due to financial and family situations where they are forced to drop out. Typically, these students are unable to finish their education. Programs such as Elisha C. gives them the opportunity to continue their schooling- breaking their cycle of poverty.
