Pre-K Evaluation-13

A great way to get to know Sonlight students individually and make a difference in a Haitian child’s life is through Sonlight’s Student Sponsorship Program. It is designed to meet our students’ physical and spiritual needs and covers educational costs and some medical care. Our sponsors are encouraged to write their students often, send Christmas gifts, and even visit them here in Port-de-Paix! You will receive regular letters from your sponsored child, photos, and a copy of your child’s grade card at the end of the school year.

Sonlight’s sponsorship program is a $45 per month for 12 months per year.

Sonlight combines the support money received from all sponsors and uses this money evenly among all the children. This way, all students benefit and can be helped.

The kids love to get letters and photos from their sponsors. You can write as often as you like and send your mail to the address below:

Yes! We encourage this life-changing experience. It is possible to join groups organized through Sonlight to visit your student. Contact Carmen Niehaus ( for details.

Children enter Sonlight at the age of 4 or 5. Some sponsors support a student all through his/her school years. Others support a student for one or two years. Either approach is valuable and helpful.

Yes! Many people ask to sponsor a boy or girl of the same age as their own child or grandchild. Simply tell us your preference and we will do our best to match it with a student in need of a sponsor.

All gifts mailed for students will be given at the student’s class Christmas
party. We are unable to deliver gifts to students at other times. To ensure
your student’s gift arrives in time, our deadline is the end of August.
