Solidarity Dame Marian is pleased to welcome Meena Moise as our Sponsorship Representative and Student Mentor. Meena is currently in Grade 12 in Dame Marie and has been a sponsored student since Pre Kindergarten. She is an A+ student and still finds time to volunteer for Solidarity and to be an active Girl Scout. Meena will serve as a direct liaison between Dame Marie and Miami with weekly telephone reports. She will take photos, handle registrations, and collect report cards. Most importantly Meena as student mentor will be able to help students having problems at school.
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 success in Haiti. Education provides children with the tools they need to create brighter futures for themselves and their families.
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.
The Sponsorship Program pays tuition for local children whose families do not have the financial means to send their children to school. The choice of schools is decided by the parents. 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.
We encourage all sponsorship participants to consider meeting their child in person by visiting Dame Marie. We will gladly assist with all travel arrangements.
Students are responsible for attending school regularly, having a registration photo taken by a Solidarity Representative,and submitting report cards to our local rep.
Parents are responsible for completing the registration process with a Solidarity Representative, selecting the school they wish their child to attend, and ensure that their child goes to school. Students leaving Dame Marie to live in other areas forfeit their sponsorship.
Solidarity 's Responsibilities
Solidarity will search for sponsors to pay tuition costs and match the students to the sponsors. We will forwards funds to Haiti and issue a tax receipt to the sponsors. The sponsors will also receive copies of the student's report card, a photo and a letter introducing their student.
Going to school can release children from the cycle of poverty...
