Less than 5% of Haitian students finish highschool and less than 1% of students who complete high school go on to attend college. Many organizations sponsor elementary aged students but few help older students. Halo sponsors students in middle school, high school, trade school and college.  Our goal is to see each of our scholars attend a university or vocational program post-graduation.  Profits from our printing business go toward this effort, but we also rely on the generosity of donors to accomplish this mission.
I am Bacheny and am 20 years old. I have been finished with high school since 2018. Only 5% of the students pass the final examination. I worked hard and passed. One of the reasons I was able to finish high school is because Halo helped me. I have not been able to go to college because my family does not have money to send me. In Haiti there is a saying, “chita pa bay.” I guess that means, “sitting on your butt won’t get you anything.” Rather than sit on my backside, I have been learning English and reading as ... read more


My name is Lovely and I am 23 years old. I graduated from TLC Barefoot Elementary School and Concordia High School. My English is very good and I was an excellent student. Although I finished high-school a few years ago I have not been able to attend a university, because I am from a BIG family - 10 siblings - and my mom and step-dad do not have funds to help me. My mom makes some money doing laundry for others but it is not even enough to live on. I have worked hard to learn English and it is very good. There... read more

Like several of the other Halo students, I graduated from TLC Barefoot Elementary School and Concordia High School. I graduated first in my class in both of these schools. I have worked hard and am very disciplined. I didn’t graduate #1 because I am smart, but because I work so hard. I am currently attending Medical School at UNIFA University in Port au Prince but it is expensive and I don't know if I can continue. I volunteer at a local hospital in the pre-natal sectcion and am learning so... read more

My name is Rose and I am 18 years old and graduated from Sonlight Academy in Port-de-Paix, a small town on the north coast of Haiti last year. Sonlight is an English Immersion school and I was extremely blessed to be able to attend it. I graduated at the top of my class. Because my English is so good, I was chosen to be the simultaneous translator for US speakers who came to give the graduation address. I have a wonderful family. My dad works at a local school and does maintenance and repairs, but earns very .... read more

My name is Paulina and I am one of the youngest students in Halo. I just turned 14.
