Education is imperative to the advancement of a society and Children of Port-Au-Prince Haiti (CPH) is dedicated to ensuring every child receives the education they ultimately deserve, regardless of where they were born. Studies show that a non-educated society is a society that breeds violence and intolerance. On the other side, an educated society promotes citizens who make thoughtful and informed decisions that have a positive impact on their lives, their families, their community, and their world. It is the responsibility of everyone to help children learn and become leaders in their society.
CPH started changing children's lives around the world in January 2011 with the launch of our ‘Education is Strength Initiative.’ The initiative aims at providing funding for school supplies, required uniforms, textbooks, and tuition for countless children in need. The program is a merit and financial need based scholarship program that ensures well deserving children are not limited in pursuing their dreams.
The initiative was first launched in Haiti working collaboratively with local organizations and other international humanitarian agencies. We strive to further our ability to help children all across the world with education, and hope with increased funding the initiative will eventually expand to other countries in need.
