Uptown Cheapskate and Kid to Kid have partnered with buildOn to fund and build schools in rural communities in developing countries. In January 2017, buildOn completed a new school in Monneron, Haiti funded by your donations. The national poverty rate is 58.6%, and the extreme poverty rate is 24.7%. Only 61% of the country is literate. The students of Monneron previously learned in an overcrowded and rundown school. With their new facilities, they are able to learn in a functional building equipped with desks, space for every student, and bathrooms.
These students are studying reading, writing, and mathematics in their new school. Girls will be able to study side-by-side with boys and participate equally. Through the donations we’ve collected at our Charity Fill-A-Bag Sales, you’ve helped break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and expectations for children like these. The students of Monneron thank you for your donations!
