You can change a child's life through sponsorship!
Solidarity Dame Marian believes education is important not only for the child's development but also for their future to succeed in Haiti. Education provides children with the tools they need to create brighter futures for themselves and their families. it is a legacy, a gift like no other!
A sponsorship is $125 a year and your money will go directly towards a child's education.
There are NO administration costs taken from your donation.
As a donor, you will sponsor a specific child. Solidarity Dame Marian will send you a photo and information about your child and we encourage you to correspond with your child by sending letters. You will receive report cards and a letter at the end of the school year from your child. We encourage all child sponsor participants to consider meeting their child in person and visiting the beauty of Dame Marie and Haiti. We will gladly assist with all travel arrangements.
Students are responsible for forwarding their report card, proof of attendance and a yearly letter to our local representative. These are then forwarded to the student’s sponsor. We have Canadian Solidarity representatives living in Dame Marie and Board members travel to Dame Marie at least once a year to meet with the children and make a more detailed report to the sponsors.
The Sponsorship Program pays tuition for local children whose families do not have the financial means to send their children to school. The family does not receive direct funding but rather tuition is paid by our local Solidarity Representative directly to the school. As long as the child remains sponsored by a family their tuition is continued regardless of grade standing.
Going to school can release children from the cycle of poverty...
