Haiti Les Cayes

Haiti: Les Cayes

Les Cayes is a seaport city located in southwestern Haiti. Including outlying areas, the population is over 125,000 people. It is roughly 120 miles (a 4-6 hour drive or more) from the capital city of Port-au-Prince, the primary source of its food and supplies.

Since Haiti does not have a universal public education system funded by the government, E=H’s program in Les Cayes provides financial sponsorship to support 120 or more students each year attending a variety of schools – kindergarten through university levels. Over 50% of the students in our program are attending classes above the 6th Grade level.
Our onsite Haitian staff meets with parents, guardians, and young adult students at the beginning of each school year to assess their financial need for assistance to pay tuition and fees. With the help of your donations and individual student sponsorships, we then partner with the students and their families to cover the tuition and fees that they are unable to pay. This amount varies based on the grade level, type of school and each family’s financial situation.
