Although it ended opening up late in September 2018, Institution Mixte Source Divine was right in time for many parents with tuition of only $38 to $95 for the school year. The school is located in the very impoverish town Titanyen. Tuition was set low to attract the families unable to pay for existing area schools. Yet, many families are still struggling to pay the tuition. Some parents were keeping their children home because they could not afford the cost of uniforms, shoes and supplies. Having learned this, we vowed to do everything we could to prevent financial burdens from being a barrier to education for students of the school.
Les Sophos Les Sophos opened up in 2016 in the Siloe neighborhood of Delmas. However, the school began experiencing financial difficulties and was in danger of closing. Many students would be left unable to attend other schools which are priced higher. We decided to take over ownership of the school to prevent it from closing and the negative consequences to the students and families. Similar to Source Divine, Les Sophos has incomplete construction and insufficient/inadequate resources.
The school currently has 70 students; it is expected that more students will attempt to register with the school for the new school year starting September 2019. Tuition ranges from roughly $88 to $205 for the year. This amount is inadequate to pay for salaries, yet tuition cannot be raised since some families struggle to pay the current tuition cost.Our goal is to make each school a safe and modern structure, provide school lunch, computer training and some scholarships..
