Target Population

  • Children of disadvantaged families
  • Abandoned children/orphans
  • Children in domesticity (Restavek)
  • Street children

The children of Haiti are the most needy in Haitian society. Underprivileged families are often forced to send their children to live with well-off families because they cannot afford to keep them.  Domesticity or Restavek as they are known in Haitian Creole, is a form of indentured servitude, which sometimes borders on slavery. Often times these children find themselves in desperate situations due to abuse from the host family.  It is our hope that with your help we can give families another option.
