We believe that children's education transforms lives and facilitates an escape from the cycle of poverty. Donations toward our child education program pay for basic school supplies, learning materials, lunches, and teacher salaries.
Currently, we are working with the School St Martin De Tours and Jean Marie Guilloux. Combined, these two schools provide vital education to well over 3,000 children! The cost for one child to attend kindergarten or secondary school is on average only $210 USD annually, so your support is urgent and goes a long way.
Every child deserves a healthy meal during the day. Many kids attending school travel long distances to have a better life, but they sometimes go days without any food. We plan to provide at least one meal per day during school hours from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. We are looking for companies to donate food for the hungry in the form of school lunches at two Haitian schools. Please contact us if you are interested in helping us give young children the nutritious food they need.
Safe Drinking Water
In many parts of Haiti, rainwater is the only drinking water available. However, rainwater isn’t always safe to drink. Yvonne's 100th Wish, Inc. is dedicated to ensuring that potable water systems can provide access to healthy drinking water. The secure water system we are developing will cost approximately $20,000. Please donate today to support this program.
In too many towns, doctor's visits are a luxury that families cannot afford. Our organization arranges for doctors and nurses to come to schools for a day to check on the kids. We also sponsor two clinics, run health and wellness fairs and a mobile clinic, and support efforts to confront sensitive health topics in these communities.
Athletics programs are a great way to help kids get exercise and stay healthy. We are forming a basketball team and have trainers available to run practices during the summer months. Young athletes can join our program and improve their skills.
