Needs for our schools for 2009/2010

For our Sept. enrollment for the upcoming year we are in need of your help. We anticipate we will have 26 schools with approx. 4400 children attending.
We will be feeding 1,276,000 meals this year.

We will need $32,000. to purchase books, $42,000. to make all the uniforms.

Funds to pay 250 full time staff in Haiti which include all the teachers, and support staff. Our average salary is only $100.U.S. per month but this still adds up to $300,000. U.S. for the year.

Also the funds for medicine, clean drinking water, construction of new schools, equipment, tools.
Purchase of containers $4000. to ship supplies, and $6500. for shipping costs to Haiti. We hope to ship 4 to 6 containers of food into the country at a cost a costs of $39,000 for shipping and $24,000 for the purchase of the containers for a total of $63,000. If we are unable to do this our food costs in Haiti would be well over $600,000. Every dollar makes a difference. There is still much more that I haven't listed for needs of vehicles, repairs, office supplies and much more...

Thank you for making a difference..

I have been asked what if we cannot raise the money needed to operate the schools. The answer is that we would have to close some schools down and as a result several children would die of starvation. Closing is not an option.
We still have 17 locations on the waiting list with 4000 children waiting to start school in areas that we have not been able to reach yet because of lack of funding. Together we can make a difference. Please make your donation today or contact me if you have any questions.... lifelinehaiti@gmail.com
