In 2013 you funded a year of education for Bengie so that she could support her son. We’re now delighted to report that the education you funded is paying off.
Bengie has used her new language skills to find a job with a local non-profit that teaches English to at risk young women. Her new job pays a living wage and is allowing Bengie to help other young women build a brighter future – and it’s all thanks to you.
As families across the US gather to give thanks, we wanted to let you know that this year, Bengie and 150 students just like her are thankful for you.
We wish you a very happy Thanksgiving from Port au Prince and our staff at IDV!
