How they are participating
Sponsoring a teacher is the most powerful way you can join us in the fight against poverty, to improve literacy, and promote education for all in Haiti. How does sponsorship help teachers? Your sponsorship gifts will equip a teacher and her/his community with access to important basics such as nutritious food, housing, healthcare, continuing education, economic development, and more. Sponsorship also helps Haitian teachers improve their teaching skills through ongoing training and support so they can continue to earn an income, provide for their families, teach full time, and mentor children in their communities. How does teacher sponsorship work? Sponsorship brings change to more than just one teacher—it strengthens an entire school and community as well. By pooling your sponsorship gifts with donations from other sponsors, such as family, coworkers, small group, church, team, school, class, etc. the benefits you help provide extend to each teacher's family, school, community, and children in need of education. That's because HavServe volunteers plan and work alongside local community leaders over the long term to address critical needs and help build healthy communities for children in impoverished places.
