Mission of Hope wants to educate their students through technology. Let's give them a tech lab so they can experience this great, big world!

For every 100 children in Haiti, 40 will never go to school. Of the 60 children who do, 42 will complete primary school, 20 will attend secondary school programs, and only 5 students will go on to graduate from high school. We’re working to change that! Quality education is vital in our effort to improve the economic structure of Haiti.

WHAT THEY'RE DOING NOW:

The School of Hope has approximately 3,000 students enrolled per school year in Kindergarten through High School. Mission of Hope has emerged in the top 5% of schools in the country, witnessing a 100% passing rate on the government exams for the academic year 2010 – 2011. 3,000+ students educated daily 3 locations for educating children 100% passing rate on government exams 30,600,000 meals served in the past 2 years.

WHAT THEY NEED:

Mission of Hope is in the process of expanding their programs to include education through technology. The goal is to teach the students how to use a computer to how to conduct research, build reports and present their findings to their peers. Currently, a vast majority of the students have no access at all to any type of technology in their home lives. With this tech lab, they will finally have an opportunity, for the first time in their lives, to use the internet, learn how to type and experience the world outside their own.

Our current economic situation limits the funding available for these types of activities, but I'm hoping that you will consider helping me provide the technology the students of Mission of Hope need. They are future thought-leaders and visionaries, just like all of us. They deserve the chance to discover their potential. I hope you'll consider donating to this cause; no amount is too small when it comes to a child's future. Thank you so much for visiting this site and considering this unique opportunity to impact a community.
