Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Orphan Sponsorships

$50 per month can help an orphaned child receive food, shelter, schooling and limited medical care!

Population(s) Served

Economically disadvantaged people

Very few schools in Haiti are free.  Many parents are too poor to send their children to school.  $25 per month can help educate a child!

Students

Financial gifts provide medical care for poor children who cannot receive the medical care they need in Haiti.  The country lacks modern medical care!

People with diseases and illnesses

Financial gifts make it possible for Caribbean Children's Foundation to assist with the building of schools in a country that has one of the highest illiteracy rates in the Western Hemisphere!

A meal is provided for students each school day. For some students this is the only meal that they will eat on any particular day. Many of our students only receive three meals per week in their homes!
