The purpose of this project is to provide disadvantaged Haitian youths with need based scholarships to attend school in the next school year. Only 50% of all kids in Haiti have ever attended school. The project will partner with the L’Ecole Communautaire de Port-Salut to provide full scholarships for all of its 200 students. The project will provide 200 scholarships to Haitian students who will attend L’Ecole Communautaire de Port-Salut. All 200 of those full scholarships will come from the Ron Brown Community Service Grant. The selected students would not otherwise be able to pay for school since Haiti has a 70% unemployment rate and 50% of kids never attend school because the government does not provide free public school for all kids. The students at ECP are poorer than the average student in Port-Salut.
