The Sponsor-A-Student program provides tuition, books, and hope to the children of St Theresa of the Infant Jesus Catholic School in St Jean du Sud. Many of the families in the parish are unable to pay for school for their children in either the Catholic School or at the National (public) School. People can send just $100 per school year to the Haiti Sponsor-A-Student program by using the S-A-S donation form. Money for the school year will be collected from March to August for the following school year which starts in October. Presently, HR sponsors about 150 children at St Theresa of the Infant Jesus School. The school serves about 600 children from pre-school to 8th grade. HR also supports the school and the children by sending donated school supplies each spring in the sea container shipment.

The Holy Redeemer Haiti Committee Scholarship Program began in 2007 in an effort to support the educational pursuits of the youth of our sister parish, St. Jean du Sud, Haiti. Many young people of Haiti have the ability and desire to continue their education or pursue vocational training beyond the secondary level but are prevented from doing so because they do not have the financial means. Those who demonstrate a desire to improve their community and to contribute in positive ways to Haiti’s future are the students the Scholarship Program most wants to help.
