Welcome to All the Children
are a nonprofit 501c3 organization which funds the
ALL CHILDREN ARE CHILDREN ORPHANAGE IN HAITI,
located in Guyotin-Coco, Haiti which was founded by
Mr. Philocles Desir in 2002 out of a
critical need to provide basic education, clothing
and food to children in one of the poorest rural
communities in Haiti.
Currently, 300 students attend school in a one room
building with 12 benches that can only accommodate
30 students. The remaining students hold classes
outside underneath trees, if weather permits.
More children would like to attend but, space and
school funds are limited. Presently, a staff of 5
teachers and a principal maintain the school. The
classroom ratio is about 60 students per teacher.
Students are taught without basic supplies such as
textbook, pencils and paper at times.
The school and the village have no running water,
electricity, transportation or even health care. To
get water requires a walk several miles to the
mountain and back. It is not unusual to see children
3 or 4 carrying water of buckets on their heads.
