Summary

Your gift frees and educates vulnerable children. This Christmas, you can give the gift of freedom and education to girls and boys trapped in slavery. Your support for Schools Not Slavery helps families keep their children at home and in school, and keeps so many more children from ever becoming enslaved.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There just aren't enough schools in rural Haiti and those that do exist are often too expensive. Parents who can't afford to send their children to school often send them away to the city live with a family they don't know in the hopes they will send the child to school in exchange for a little housework. Instead these children are often enslaved - forced to work every waking hour and subject to regular abuse and humiliation. About 250,000 children are trapped in this form of modern-day slavery.

How will this project solve this problem?

Your gift: Helps rural parents find & free their children from slavery; Funds teacher training, textbooks, tuition matching and school gardens; Provides adult literacy training, agricultural training and seed & tool banks.

Potential Long Term Impact

Children who would otherwise be trapped in slavery grow up at home, in communities where they are loved, protected and educated. Communities are equipped with the knowledge, skills and resources they need to stop the flow of their children into slavery. Schools can deliver more affordable, higher quality instruction to students. Education programming prepares students to build better lives and stronger communities in which all people can live free from extreme poverty and exploitation.
