The school system in Haiti is not free, and many children there are not able to attend due to the costs. PAPIYON ensures that all of our kids attend school. We pay for registration, books, uniforms, school supplies, exam fees, and tuition. PAPIYON also has its own after-school curriculum, which includes critical thinking, creativity as a process, community service, collaboration, environmentalism, and social justice.
While PAPIYON provides for educational expenses, the Haitian school system can be difficult to navigate for our students. PAPIYON aspires to have tutors to work with our students on a daily basis, so that their academic performance can improve.
