Imagine living in a place where a year's tuition for just one child, in public or private secondary school, costs 25─40 percent of the average person's annual salary. Fewer than five percent of children graduate from high school. And almost 70 percent of college graduates leave the country.
Louverture Cleary School students receive a Haitian Ministry of Education-approved education─tuition-free. Watch the video below to hear what a LCS education means to our graduates.
We provide and advocate for education as the most effective tool for transforming the entire environment of Haiti so that people can manifest their full potential, thrive, and build a better future for their country.
Over 90 percent of our alumni are either studying or working in Haiti, earning on average 15 times the per-capita income of Haiti, supporting themselves and their families and giving back to their country.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, The Haitian Project is able to keep Louverture Cleary School tuition-free and provide scholarships for over 50% of our graduates to attend Haitian universities. Your support is paramount to our mission.
