The Children of Haiti and Refugee Projects (COHRP) is a private, non-profit corporation with the mission to bring strong and effective education and nutrition to some of the poorest children in Haiti and to the children of refugees in Africa, Jordan and Israel.
Our programs are focused on providing education, healthcare and nutrition to deprived children in a framework optimized for results. We continue to seek out new areas of refugee children who are underserved and in need of support.
Children of Haiti Project (COHP)
Shortly after the destructive earthquake in 2010 in Haiti, TIE (The International Educator) and PTC (The Principals’ Training Center), together with many other institutions and interested persons, established a school for 60 of the poorest children living in a nearby tent camp in Delmas, Port-au-Prince.
Refugee Children of Israel Project (COIP)
In Israel, a model classroom will be created to serve 35 children who are illegal immigrants from Sudan and Eritrea, preparing them for entry into the Israeli school system. The project is currently in its final planning stages and we will update on our progress as it develops.
Refugee Children of Jordan Project (COJP)
In Jordan the mission is to prepare preschool age children, mostly Syrian refugees, for entry into grade one, where Jordanian schools will accept them. The project is currently in its final planning stages and we will update on our progress as it develops.
Refugee Children of Uganda Project (COUP)
In Uganda a new children’s center will be created, serving 200 age 6 to 14 refugee children with literacy and numeracy skills, to support their three hours daily of formal schooling. The Uganda center does not offer food/nutrition as this is provided at school. The project is currently in its final planning stages and we will update on our progress as it develops.
Each of these programs will include a nutritional program to support the health and well-being of the children. These efforts are being funded by a major commitment of resources from TIE and the PTC, together with contributions from interested individuals, and international schools and organizations.
