Let’s Send 40 Children from Shada, Cap Haitien to School!

January 5, 2012

This holiday season CHILDREN OF HAITI is partnering with a local youth group in Haiti to raise $4300 to send 40 kids from Cap-Haitien, Haiti to school. The kids participating in the program are all members of a local kids organization in Cap-Haitien that has been supporting development in their community by volunteering their time for water, sanitation and hygiene projects. The local organization, UJDS (Union de Jeunes pou Developman Shada), is based in the community of Shada, a vibrant, but impoverished neighborhood on the outskirts of Haiti’s second largest city. This group has participated in a scholarship program for the past 4 years with the support of international partner organizations, including SOIL (, Vwa Ayiti ( and Children of Haiti ( This year, due to their focus on other projects, neither SOIL nor Vwa Ayiti were able to support the scholarship project and so we are asking for your help to ensure that these motivated students can stay in school.

Many of you have been touched by the stories of vulnerable children in Cap Haitien that were shared in our film. Our goal has always been to use the film as a tool for generating change for the youth of Cap Haitien. We hope that in the spirit of this giving season you will consider supporting this program. A donation of $100 will send one child to school for a year. Thank you for your support!
