Haiti Foundation Against Poverty


Sponsor-A-Child

HFAP is able to offer free education to our students by matching each child with a sponsor in the states. For $30 a month a sponsor can provide education, clothes, food, and medical attention to a child in need. Our children consider their sponsors to be their parents, and they are so thankful for the opportunity to go to school!

If you are interested in sponsoring a child please email your address and contact information to information@haitipoverty.com . You may add if you prefer to sponsor a specific age or gender. We will send you a picture of a child and an informational packet in the mail.
