Summary

This project provides a safe home for 30 orphaned children in Haiti. The 2010 earthquake destroyed the orphanage, leaving all of the children homeless. We've already provided them with a new house, and we're now meeting all their needs. Some, like 2 year old Germina, were abandoned when their relatives couldn't care for them. She was just 6 days old when she arrived. Others arrived at the orphanage after their parents died. All of the kids would be homeless without donors like you.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Orphaned children in Haiti have few chances at a bright future. The government agency which should look after them is corrupt and under-funded. Even where they do their best, they can care for only a fraction of Haiti's homeless kids. That leaves children like Germina reliant on private institutions like the HTDC orphanage. HTDC can only meet her needs if donors like you provide the funding it needs to care for her.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project will provide funding so that the HTDC orphanage can invest in each child's future with nutritious food, quality education, health care, and enriching activities like English and art classes. The orphanage is currently housed in a rented house, but the directors are pursuing plans to build a permanent structure on land that they own. With your support, HTDC will grow to help many more than 30 children grow into tomorrow's leaders!

Potential Long Term Impact

Without the support of the HTDC orphanage, many of the children at the orphanage would likely die before adulthood. If they did survive, their future would have been bleak and likely include crime, poverty, and homelessness. By investing in the most vulnerable of Haiti's children, HTDC will change these children's futures - they have the opportunity to grow into health, successful adults who will help the larger community become stronger.
