Breakfast Program Expands to Eleven Schools

Launched in 2012, the Breakfast Program began by serving breakfast to 310 children two days a week at Saint Joseph’s School in Dubre. Today, thanks to your support, the Program serves breakfast to 2,335 children at eleven schools, five days a week, during the school year. The Program is the philanthropic arm of the organization’s work in Haiti and meets the immediate need of poor childhood nutrition. Many of the children who are beneficiaries of the program don’t have enough to eat at home. In addition, many of them must walk long distances to get to school. By the time they arrive at school, they are tired and unable to focus on their schoolwork. The Breakfast Program provides at least one nutritious meal a day and has helped to increase attendance at school too. The most critical need for the Program is to raise continued operating support. It cost $100 to support one child for an entire school year. Your donation goes directly to help the beneficiaries of this important program.
