Haiti Reads believes that each child in Haiti should have access to books. Unfortunately, only children whose families can afford the approximate $150.00 annual tuition have access to books, and even those children use outdated textbooks, if any at all.
"Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him."
Haiti Reads believes that it can change the literacy rate in the communities it serves by teaching free basic literacy classes to children and their parents. It is our believe that those who have the chance to take advantage of these free classes will be able to teach what they have learned to others in their community.
