$500 – Ensures that 20 children will attend school for a whole year and receive uniforms, socks, shoes, a book bag, and school supplies. (Children whose parents cannot afford to buy uniforms are not allowed to attend public schools.)
The difference it makes: Education is the most important step toward breaking the cycle of poverty.
$360 – Buys two solar panels, a storage battery and pays for installation of a renewable energy system that provides electricity for one family.
The difference it makes: Parents can work longer hours and increase their income; children can do their homework; the family can have refrigeration to keep their food safe; and listen to the radio without using batteries. Most importantly since once the solar system installed, the power is free.
$250 – Pays for a literacy course to teach basic reading, writing and math to 20 women for 3 months. This includes the teacher’s fee, the books and notebooks, pens and other supplies.
The difference it makes: Women who can read and write become well informed citizens, aware of their civil rights, better able to obtain living wage jobs, keep their family intact, practice better nutrition, and have more of a chance to lift their family out of extreme poverty.
$180 – Buys a used computer for an afterschool program attended by children ages 6 to 12.
The difference it makes: Learning how to use a computer opens a whole world to disadvantaged children. Access to the Internet improves their school work makes them aware of choices, and prepares them to be part of the 21st century workforce.
$100 – Buys 50 chicks for one of the independent egg farms the project will help to establish.
The difference it makes: The small farms supported by the Project’s Farm Cooperative must have between 200 and 500 chickens to be viable. Ten people who each purchase 50 chicks enable one woman led household to start an egg production farm, and earn a living wage.
$50 – Pays for vaccinating ten children
The difference it makes: Many children in Haiti are not vaccinated and so are unprotected against diseases that can be fatal.
$25 – Purchases 10 specially treated mosquito nets to protect children and adults from being infected with malaria.
The difference it makes: Malaria is a debilitating disease carried by mosquitoes that prevents those infected from working or attending school. The specially treated nets have proven to be an effective shield.
Your donation can fill other needs too, such as providing fees for trainers who assist farmers every step of the way in establishing and running their farms; books for school libraries; farm tools; school supplies for teachers and pupils; healthcare services for women and children, maintenance of wells; saplings for reforestation programs; and seeds for community gardens. These are all essential ingredients in breaking the cycle of poverty and building self-reliant communities.
Please note that all donations go into the General EWI Fund.
