Sponsor a Student

Your $35 a month can change a student’s life in Gressier, Haiti.

There is no free public education system in Haiti, due to this less than 60% of elementary students are enrolled in school and by 9th grade, less than 20% are still enrolled in school.
Through our sponsorship program, we offer students a chance to receive holistic education. Our students develop life skills that will equip them to positively impact their communities and the world. For our donors, sponsorship provides an opportunity to connect with a student at Respire Haiti Christian School and develop a personal relationship that can last a lifetime!
