Charlotte lives with her parents in a rural area near the town of Jeremie. Highly intelligent, at a young age she stands out for her kindness and communication skills. For example, she already speaks excellent French even though many Haitian children are only fluent in Creole. In fact, she’s helping other kids in her school to learn because she speaks French with them. Her teachers say she is a natural leader, yet she’s in danger of dropping out of school because her parents can’t afford to pay. With your support, she will be able to stay in school, and this will free up her parents to use the little income they have to create a more stable life for her and the rest of her family.

Age: 7

Education

Education is an essential step toward overcoming poverty. Yet most families struggle to afford to send their kids to school. When a student is supported through Thrive Ansanm, we cover the cost of their tuition, books, uniforms, food, and transportation, so they can stay in school and excel.

Mentoring

The support of a caring mentor can make all the difference. Our mentors truly care about the students, and they provide much-needed guidance and support. This is especially important for young people living in poverty because often their parents never received an education themselves.

Resources

Resources are the tools that are needed to succeed. In Haiti, most people don’t have access to consistent electricity, and they live in inadequate housing conditions. At our resource center, students can study, connect with their mentors, and access computers and internet.

Where does your money go?

School Costs

When you support a student, we commit to keeping that student in school. This means that we cover the student’s tuition and help with other necessities such as books, uniforms, food, and transportation.

Programs

Once the student’s school costs are covered, we invest the majority of the remaining money in our programs. This includes staff/mentor wages, resource center rent, student activities, and other such essential program expenses.

Fundraising / Administration

We reserve a small portion of the money you donate toward a student to help with our fundraising efforts, keep the lights on, and make sure our program is running smoothly.
