Almost 80% of Haitian schools require fees for children to attend. The fees often come from families selling livestock or using profits from their farms. When Hurricane Matthew swept through Haiti, communities lost homes, schools, and farmable land.
School fees compete with immediate needs for shelter and food. This often makes it impossible for families to send their children back to school.

You teach me, I forget. You show me, I remember. You involve me, I understand.
