Giving Tuesday is a movement to create an international day of giving at the commencement of the holiday season. This year, it falls on Tuesday, November 28th, 2017. We would greatly appreciate your financial support as we continue our mission to improve the lives of children in Haiti. Please donate to our program, Greater Good Haiti, and help us spread the word by posting the following message to your social media for Giving Tuesday:
This Giving Tuesday, please consider a donation to Greater Good Haiti (GGH):
Greater Good Haiti is an organization that was started by a public school teacher named Kelly Kobza, who went to Haiti to help with the earthquake efforts and ended up staying there and starting a school that provides literacy and education to children who’ve not had access to the primary school system. The program is a fast-track for 8-12 year old students so that they are able to pass the National Education Exam and move on to middle school. Without GGH, they can’t get into the system and would not be able to become literate.
A particularly compelling aspect of GGH is that it truly makes a life-changing difference to children who otherwise have very little hope, and the dollars raised go extremely far to achieve that result. The school educates and provides hot meals, shoes, uniforms, and supplies to 36 children each year on an annual budget of less than $1,000 per child. So far 44 children have been graduated and moved on to middle school, which GGH also helps pay for so that they can stay in school. The children have been taught in an accelerated program to read and write, and these kids–who previously had no opportunity to become educated–can now move forward on a much different life path– one with hope, and opportunity for upward mobility.
The organization makes a huge difference in individual lives–of the students, as well as the teachers and surrounding community. Kelly lives extremely simply in order to accomplish what she does, and has selflessly dedicated her life to helping these children and their community.
Should we receive a major donation, we could meet the requests of surrounding communities to expand our program. With your help, our program could reach far more children.
Please consider supporting Greater Good Haiti this Giving Tuesday. Donations are tax-deductible, and monthly recurring donations are very helpful because they provide a steady, predictable income. In Haiti, a little bit goes a long way toward drastically changing the opportunities available to these amazing kids.
Thanks in advance for your support!
