It’s Back to School Time in Haiti, too

Back to school is in full swing in the US now.  It is also in full swing in Haiti.  Education, while taken as an expected right here, is a privilege in Haiti.  It can be the difference in being able to have a better life for Haitian children and their families.  RMI is impacting 2,000+ children in southern Haiti through its Hope for Kidz Child Sponsorship Program.  Are you sponsoring a child?

You can be a change agent in a child’s life!  Now is the time to renew your sponsorship of your child if you haven’t already done it.  If you aren’t supporting a child now is time to take up the challenge to impact a Haitian child’s life.  Sponsor a child through RMI’s Hope for Kidz child sponsorship program.  Sponsorship is only $28 a month or $336 for the entire year.  Donate online HERE.  Don’t delay because like we said...it’s back to school time!
