The overall incidence of poverty in the country is 77%. But in rural areas, which are home to 52% of Haiti’s population, 88% of people are poor and 67% 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.
