What we do!
Haiti Reads believes that each child in Haiti should have access to books. Unfortunately, only children whose families can afford the approximate $150.00 annual tuition have access to books, and even those children use outdated textbooks, if any at all.Haiti Reads believes that it can change the literacy rate in the communities it serves by teaching free basic literacy classes to children and their parents. It is our belief that those who have the chance to take advantage of these classes will be able to teach what they have learned to others in their community.
Please help Haiti Reads by donating to purchase materials, books for the library, and to pay our teachers. Thank you!

"When I was a child, my family was too poor to send me to school. We had one book which I looked at every day. I was determined to learn what those words on the pages meant. With much resolve, I learned how to read by asking the few people in my family who knew how to read to teach me. It was a struggle, but I was determined. Today, I speak and can read in four different languages. Books made this possible for me."
