Help a Girl GROW for the Holidays

Quality Education for Haitian Girls


In Haiti, approximately 75% of all teachers lack adequate training, and nearly 25% of teachers have never attended secondary school. Equally alarming is how few Haitian children attend school, especially girls. The percentage of children who complete primary school is low (50%), and sadly, only 20% of Haitian girls receive a secondary education (grades 7-13).

We’ve teamed up with Jordin Sparks, Jason Derulo, and The M.A.D. Girls to launch The Other Side: GROW Haiti to improve the quality of secondary education in Haiti as well as remove the barriers to education for these girls. Your support of The Other Side: GROW Haiti will be used to improve the quality of education in Haiti.
