Development through education.

Haitian Sports Foundation (HSF) recognizes that the education sector in Haiti remains weak in many aspects and for several reasons. According to the World Bank, the Haitian government has been unable to leverage resources to finance and sustain free education for the youth.

Lack of government investment has resulted in the fact that NGOs or private institutions run more than 80 percent of primary and secondary schools in Haiti. The absence of subsidies has opened up a huge market for the private sector, so basic education has become an expensive privilege dependent on the socio- economic status of families.

BUILDING THE FUTURE

While the enrollment rate in the country's primary schools, which are predominantly non-public and managed by NGO's or religious organizations, is as high as 88 percent, the secondary school enrollment rate is only 20 percent of eligible-age children. This disparity results in a population of young people who are not employable, have limited prospects for sustaining a livelihood, and who risk becoming socially dysfunctional, or believe they must leave their country to find a better life. Haiti's current literacy rate is only 61 percent (United Nations report, 2017), far below neighboring Caribbean and Latin American countries with average literacy rates closer to 90 percent.

Haitian Sports Foundation (HSF), a 501(c) (3) non- profit organization in the USA and a registered non- governmental organization (NGO) in Haiti, statistics indicate the lives of its children in the communities of Anse-à-Veau, Haiti have improved since its founding in 2006.   In the past 5 years, a total of 125 children ages 8 to 16 have participated in our program, without evidence of any child or adolescent becoming delinquent or a danger to society. This success assisted the Mayor’s Office of Anse-à-Veau’s decision to donate 2 acres of land to build a complex.  HSF has used part of the complex to improve education by building classrooms, a computer lab to improve the literacy skills of the children. We are currently building a trade school and we urge each one of you to join us in our mission in continuing to make a difference.
