Haiti Reads Library
Haiti Reads believes that each child in Haiti should have access to books. Unfortunately, only children whose families can afford the approximate $150.00 annual tuition have access to books, and even those children use outdated textbooks, if any at all.
Haiti Reads believes that it can change the literacy rate in the communities it serves by teaching free basic literacy classes to children and their parents. It is our believe that those who have the chance to take advantage of these free classes will be able to teach what they have learned to others in their community.
Our mission is to provide educational training and resources to people in Haiti, with a special focus on individuals who are unable to afford the cost of formal education. Haiti Reads strives to make books available to all children and adults regardless of current enrollment in an educational institution.
Our vision is to establish centers throughout Haiti to house educational resources and provide training to people in the communities, thus providing a path from illiteracy and poverty.
