FIRST THOUSAND DAYS
In Haiti, chronic malnutrition affects 24% of children under five, with that rate
The First Thousand Days program exists in response to this devastation. The Program provides:
- Five meals per week for kids ages 0-5
- Immunizations and health care
- Clean water
- Spiritual development
- Basic health education for mothers
The Program Entails:
Most of the parents of these children cannot afford to send their kids to school, as they live on less than $1 per day. Child sponsorships help the parents fulfill the dream of providing a better future for their children and help the children empower their minds and change the path of poverty.
The 180 for Haiti program exists for kids in grades k-4th and provides:
- Scholarships to attend school
- Books and school supplies
- School uniform
- Check-ups from Health Agent
- Christmas gift with food distribution
