Accompanying Students on Their Educational Journeys
Organized in 2011, For a Reason coordinates a long-term effort to accompany students on their educational journeys. More than simply providing tuition, For a Reason builds relationships with students and their families, committing support for the duration of a student’s education – elementary through university or professional training. Working with knowledgeable, established partners in Haiti, students are identified and For a Reason support begins with the hope that once established, our graduating students will support others in the same way.
When For A Reason partners with families to keep children in school, it is for the duration of each student’s education. This means our students are able to attend school with the knowledge that they can continue each year until they reach their educational goals.
In our work with schools and students, opportunities for further development present themselves in unexpected ways. Annual building of facilities, students housing needs and disaster relief are all part of the spirit of accompaniment that For A Reason embraces.
For A Reason recognizes the importance of quality instruction and engaging school programs. Programs like Goats & Gardens and Teacher Workshops impact as many as 250 students at participating school sites and foster healthy community involvement.
