Accounting - Fully Funded!

Diemsonn is currently seeking his degree in accounting at the University of Port-Au-Prince. When he is not studying, he likes to read, exercise, listen to music, and watch “how-to” videos on YouTube. He is passionate about his education, believing that it is the key to success.

Diemsonn admires his father for how hard he worked to provide for his family. For years his dad has woken up at 4:00 am and made a long commute to work only to return late in the evening. Diemsonn explains that his father had to work this hard so that he and his 4 siblings would have clothes on their backs, a little money in their pockets, and so that they wouldn’t be hungry. Seeing how much his father has sacrificed, he is determined to pursue a career of his own so that he can help support the family. Your support will give Diemsonn the opportunity to move toward a future that is life-giving for him and his entire family.

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.
