The overall incidence of poverty in the country is 77 per cent. But in rural areas, which are home to 52 per cent of Haiti’s population, 88 per cent of people are poor and 67 per cent are extremely poor.
The average income in Haiti is less than $2.00 per day but in our village sources of income are even more limited. We had a Haitian friend from the states visit our village and as a native of Haiti he said he had never seen poverty like this.
When you ask anyone in Balan how long they go between eating the typical answer is 3 days. This reality is what compelled us to say that we had to do something to help the people of Balan.
The Walking in The Reign School provides a meal 5-days a week to the students and staff at the school. The cost for these meals is roughly $.30 a meal or $6.15 a month per student. Our total food budget is $2,000 per month. This cost is not covered in our sponsorship program.
For just $6.15 you can feed a child a meal 5-days per week for ONE MONTH or for $73.80 you can provide a child a meal 5-days per week for ONE YEAR.
We are also looking for companies who would like to give their co-workers an opportunity to provide on average 22 meals per month to over 433 children by doing a company fundraiser. Our school feeding program costs $2,000 per month. We are looking for businesses to adopt a month and help us feed children all year long.
Would you consider partnering with us through a one-time or monthly donation to support feeding children at our school?
For a donation of $30 you can provide a bag of rice for a family. Our sponsors are able to designate rice for their sponsored child’s family. When you make a $30 donation you can designate the family you want the rice to go to.
