Many thanks go out to all of who have supported our cause throughout these difficult times. In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and the growing scarcity of life-bringing resources, we need your help now more than ever to be able to continue helping our 50+ students access the relevant education, that will allow them to participate fully in the global economy. The 2020-21 academy year of was reopen on November 9th as the Haitian government out reasonable COVID-19 guidelines and safety measures for the reopening of schools. We should have paid our first tuition payment to the Vega Real College for our 50 students on the first day of school however we do not have the money. Due to the devaluation of the US dollar in Haiti ($1 used to be exchangeable with 120 Haitian gourdes; now, $1 only covers 60 Haitian gourdes), has become more difficult to cover the tuition fees for our students. Our goal is to raise $5,000 to cover the whole calendar year from November through August 2021 ($100/students a year). Your contribution will go towards making sure our students continue to have school as a safe space and a stabilizing force in their lives, especially during these difficult and uncertain times. Whatever amount you are able to give is deeply appreciated.
On behalf of the over 50 students in Light Up Our Youth Foundation, we wish you a wonderful 2021.
With Love and Gratitude,
