Population Served: K-12 (5-19 years)

Program Description:

Our school serves the children of our orphanage as well as approximately 350 children from the surrounding neighborhood of Bolosse. Because sending children to school is often too much of a financial burden for families, we offer discounted and sometimes even free tuition. We also provide a free hot lunch, often the only meal a child will eat each day.

Program:Post-Secondary Program

Category:
Population Served: At-risk youth

Program Description:

One thing that sets us apart from other organizations is that we do not stop caring for our children once they turn 18. Instead, we work hard to transition them into adulthood. Currently, we have 14 young adults in our post-secondary program who are studying either in trade school or university in Haiti, Cuba, or the U.S. We even have one young adult who has graduated university and is now working as a supervisor at the children's home where she grew up!

Balance Sheet Fiscal Year Ending December 31, 2015

Total Note: The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities also must be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
