Everday living


Living in Haiti for the average person isn't easy at all. Living on under a dollar a week. Bathing in dirty water. Houses that are poorly built. They cut down there forests to make charcoal so they could make food, but by doing that they made it so every time it rains it washes away the fertile top soil.
For children school is free, but there parents have to buy uniforms, textbooks, and supplies. So school for most people is to expensive. 65% of kids go to primary school, then secondary school drops down to 20%. Less then 35% will make it past secondary school.
