Education
"Education is the more powerful weapon that you can use to change the world."

BACK TO SCHOOL

Haiti does not offer free public school. Going to school in Haiti means paying tuition, buying uniforms, books and supplies. Half of Haiti's children do not attend school, because their families cannot afford it.
This coming school year at Kenbe Fem, we will send 24 children to elementary through high school and four students to college.
We will also make sure each child has new shoes, socks, undergarments, belts, and backpacks.

The cost for getting the kids back for the 2017/2018 school year is $13,400.

Les Joie dans Seignor
(The Joy of the Lord School)

The Les Joie School is located in Raymond, a very poor community just outside of Jacmel, Haiti. Without the Les Joie school being offered for free, most of the kids who attend would not be going to school. When BWBT first took on the school in 2015, there were 40 students. Once we offered the school for free, the attendance jumped to 160 students. The desire for kids to go to school is great, if the opportunity is made available! The level of support that we are able to give to Les Joie right now is $600 a month. This includes feeding the children a hot meal three days a week. For many of the kids, these are the only steady hot meals they receive. We have capped the enrollment at the school at 160 students, as that is what we can support for $600 a month. There are, however, requests  from more families for the children to be able to attend. Our goal is to raise $12,000 for this coming school year and be able to add an additional $400 a month and more students to Les Joie.

College Sponsorship Program

​Our journey of helping to educate some of Mexico's poorest children began in 2005 when we rejuvenated a dilapidated elementary school and built a computer/lab library in Carbonera, a fishing village where most families live on $10 a day. The highest grade offered at the school in Carbonera was 8th grade. We built a high school in the village and implemented the College Sponsorship Program. This program allows students who graduate from the high school, to attend college in Reynosa. We own a dormitory in Reynosa, where the students can live while attending college there. Since beginning the program in 2009, there have been 38 successful graduates. They young adults have gone on to become teachers, engineers, lawyers, nutritionists, nurses, and more. Many of the students volunteer at our clinics in Reynosa. We have watched as the lives of these young people have gone from living on dirt floors in tar paper and plywood shacks with leaky roofs and very little hope of leaving Carbonera, to confident, educated, working young adults who are giving back to their country. $1,200 a month supports a student. This school year, our goal is to raise $9,600 for eight students..
