With your help, Little Footprints Big Steps, will provide 70 children the opportunity for education, empowerment, self-esteem and a future to children who come from harsh circumstances and would not otherwise have this opportunity. With your help, they will be able to have uniforms made, buy shoes and backpacks, books, pencils, paper, school tuition, transportation to the schools, and tutors to help these children be all that they are capable of being. Change a life. Change the future.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Access to education is a major contributor to child abandonment and continued poverty. Many parents in developing countries struggle to enroll their children in school and purchase supplies, families are easily bribed by promises of educational opportunities for their children. Often, these children become victims of abuse and slavery. Education can lead to self-sufficiency and break the poverty cycle. Real hope. Real change.
How will this project solve this problem?
Children will receive education for a year while living in a safe house or with their families. We will provide uniforms, books, tutor support and transportation to and from school for each child. Little Footprints Big Steps provides loving care to Haiti's most vulnerable children, and promotes sustainable development and strong families within Haitian communities. Your donation supports in-school, on-site, outreach support for educational needs. One child at a time, building a new way of life.
Potential Long Term Impact
This project will provide the opportunity for a self-sufficient, self-determined future. For the children, their families, their communities. YOU can help make it happen, one person at a time, and generations can be affected. Break the cycle of poverty. Education is the first step. It can start here and now. And it will last forever.
