Why Sponsor a Teacher
Education alleviates poverty and changes lives. Hope Christian Academy (HCA) is one of Haiti's few free schools, serving some of the poorest children. It employs around 30 Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary Teachers, or whom about half are currently sponsored. Some teaches have over 100 students in their classes.
Sponsoring a teacher is more effective than sponsoring a child as its effect is felt by scores of children a month, who each receive a life-changing education. By sponsoring a teacher, you will help transform one of the world's poorest nations.
How much does it cost?
In Haiti a teacher earns around £120 ($150) a month. You can choose to support a whole salary, or offer to support part of a salary along with others, it's up to you. During your sponsorship, you will receive periodic letters from your teacher and news from us. We aim to ensure you receive as a minimum an annual update.
