News and upcoming events from Believe inHaiti
August 2019
Believe in Haiti is devoted to keeping Haitian families together through love, education, and service, while empowering individuals to rise above their current poverty level.

Women's health

The education system in Haiti is challenging.  There is a lack of funding, untrained teachers, and limited access to schools.  Luckily, because of your help, over 100 students in St. Rock can attend school who wouldn't be able to afford it otherwise.  Unfortunately, obstacles remain.  Many girls who attend school miss up to a quarter of the school year because of their period.  This is a new, challenging, and confusing obstacle for many.  Believe in Haiti wants to break through that obstacle.  On a recent trip down, we taught multiple Days for Girls classes to the community.  These classes provide resources and materials for girls to properly and hygienically attend to their period so that they no longer need to miss a day of school.  We taught and provided information on various women's health topics, empowering these girls to take care of themselves.
Days for girls kits can be made by anyone!  If you are interested in joining the cause for women's health in St. Rock, give us a call or send us an email to see how you can help!

St. Rock News

Up next in farming: corn season!  St. Rock has cleared some land to prepare to plant corn.  Clearing land takes many hands and a lot of hard work.  We love seeing them invested in a cause to improve their community.
The feeding program continues through the summer, offering a meal even when school is not in session.  During the summer, over 100 people still attend the feeding program.
How to help this month
*School is almost in session!  There are still a few opportunities to cover the financial costs for a child to attend school!  Click here to sponsor a child!

*Can you work a sewing machine?  Prepare and donate Days for Girls kits for Believe in Haiti to deliver to St. Rock.  Contact us through our website, call, or email and we will send you instructions and patterns.  One kit can have a big impact!

Haiti Spotlight
Jeanine
Jeanine is the mother of 4 beautiful children: Julie, Julian, Joy, and Justine.  In addition to caring for and loving her children, Jeanine is an accomplished seamstress. Jeanine’s various sewing projects help support her young and thriving family. Jeanine is often found teaching neighbors and friends how to sew on her treadle sewing machine, a reality in Haiti due to irregular electricity service. Because of Jeanine’s expertise, she is the first instructor of Believe in Haiti’s sewing program, which provides the people of St. Roch a marketable skill. Your continued support of Believe in Haiti will help grow the post-secondary training opportunities provided to the people of St. Roch, which will eventually grow into occupations, and even entrepreneurial careers.
