Sponsorship/Feeding Program

Mal-nutrition and lack of education are two of the biggest issues the youth of Haiti struggle to overcome. Many Haitian children are not afforded the opportunity for consistent schooling and often struggle to get the nutrition they need. In an effort to confront these two major issues, we have created the Restore Haiti Student Sponsorship Program. The Sponsorship program allows donors to help a specific child by providing funds that are used to provide assistance in the areas of education, nutrition, and basic healthcare. In addition to their education, the child is admitted to our feeding program after school each day.  Other benefits include access to medical clinics, and in some cases, extra financial assistance for their families specific needs.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth (0-19 years)
Budget
$450,000

Provides a path for eligible students to obtain post-secondary education to prepare them for the career field of their choice. Students work with our local staff to determine the best direction for their educational journey, as well as to determine what funds, if any, they and their family can contribute to their educational expenses, even if it is limited to a token amount. Restore Haiti then works with their individual sponsors and other donors to help supplement the funds needed to ensure they have an opportunity to complete their education.

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

Budget
$50,000

As needed, facilitate relief efforts from disasters such as hurricanes and earthquakes, to include food distribution, home repair/rebuilding, medical needs, and re-establishment of agriculture and livestock.

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

-Build a stand-alone feeding center in the Jacmel community<br/>-Increase the number of students in the sponsorship program which will provide more jobs and help more families in the community<br/>-Improve the access to and continuity of medical care in the communities we serve by taking a proactive and preventative approach

Our organization does not take on new projects until funding for them is in sight- if there is one thing Haiti doesn't need more of, it is half completed projects/buildings that were never finished. <br/><br/>To grow our sponsorship program, we need to empower our current donors to spread the word and share their sponsorship story. We also intend to research and pursue grant opportunities in the coming year.<br/><br/>For community development and building projects, we intend to make those continue to be individually sponsored and/or funded by team travel to Haiti, as these will be the projects team members will participate in while they are in-country.

Given our giving history and forward projection when analyzing the 2013 data compared to 2016 to-date data, we have seen giving and sponsorship numbers continue to rise slowly but surely. We are committed to taking the time needed to fund and complete these projects even if it takes 2 or 3 fiscal years of effort to do so.

Restore Haiti keeps our donors up to date via monthly email newsletters. Internally, we track our giving using our donor system reporting and review each initiative quarterly with our board of directors in order to assess our progress.

To date, we have accomplished implementing a new child sponsorship program, starting with 15 children in 2007 and growing it to 950+ students serving 3 different communities. We have assisted in opening the first medical clinic in the community, a preschool, and establishing a computer learning lab in partnership with a grant from Intel. We have helped provide for costs related to specific medical needs of students in our program, and have funded the building of 18 homes in the community for families living in unsafe/unsanitary living conditions. We have drilled a clean water well and provided over 50 jobs directly, as well as many more indirectly, in the communities where our programs take place.
