A safe home for Chanini

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)


This project will provide a year of safe housing for Chanini. Nine year old Chanini was cared for by her grandmother before the 2010 earthquake, along with 9 other kids. But after the earthquake their grandmother couldn't afford to look after all 10 children, so she left Chanini at the HTDC orphanage. Chanini loves to sing and dance, and she looks forward to school every day. But without the orphanage to keep her safe, Chanini would be forced to fend for herself on the streets.

As an orphan, Chanini is among the most vulnerable of Haitian children. There isn't an effective nationwide child protection service operating in Haiti to provide for her basic needs. This means that, without your help, Chanini would be a homeless street-kid, leaving her vulnerable to exploitation and destined to a life of suffering and poverty.


By donating today, you'll help us provide the home Chanini needs to stay safe and to grow up with a fighting chance. You'll also help us provide caregivers to look after Chanini and also ensure that she has access to water and electricity.

Long-Term Impact

A safe home and care are essential for every child. By providing these for Chanini, you're giving her the foundations she needs to build a bright future.
