Public education is something I took for granted as a child in Carthage Missouri. I only began to appreciate its tremendous value when moving to Haiti and seeing what children face when denied access to school. Not only are they condemned to illiteracy, but they are at great risk for getting sent into slavery. Even a small gift to Beyond Borders can free a child from slavery and provide a quality primary education. Help Beyond Borders reach its goal of raising $12,000 in April for 150 children.
