Our Mission:


For a Reason (FAR) engages in long term accompaniment with students and their families in their pursuit of an education. Our goal is simple: help students with financial challenges fulfill their educational promise and become productive members of their communities. Unique in a determination to never accept responsibility for a student unless that support can continue for the entirety of his or her educational career, we have raised funds, developed our budget, and made commitments with that purpose in mind.


Our Impact

First and foremost, FAR is engaged in active accompaniment of students throughout Haiti.  Yes, we provide financial support, but our coordinators and team members also work to maintain relationships with each of our students and their families. With the University of Redlands, we provide professional development opportunities for undereducated teachers at the schools our students attend. Joining with Partners in Agriculture, a school Goat and Garden project that educates families in sustainable gardening and livestock care has been developed and moves participants toward greater financial independence. In all of this, our students are encouraged, their families strengthened, and their communities enriched.
