Back to School!
It's that time of year again! Last week, Espwa opened its schools to over a thousand children, including all of Espwa's students and students from the community.
Espwa provides education at a reduced cost to the community, enabling children from families who may otherwise not be able to afford school, receive an education. Furthermore, unlike many schools in Haiti, Espwa strictly prohibits physical punishment.
Espwa believes that education is fundamental to the well-being of each child and to the future of Haiti. Without Espwa's affordable and accessible schools, many of Les Cayes' children would be unable to go to school and benefit from all of the opportunities, social and educational, that school can provide.
Anyone who has sent a child to school is aware costs can add up quickly between books, school supplies, and uniforms. In honor of the start of the school year, consider including Espwa's students in your prayers or making a donation to directly support our schools by selecting the "education" tab on Free the Kids website. We are extremely grateful for all of your efforts in helping us provide quality education for Haiti's children.
