Product Description

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.
