$250 to Provide a Year of Education for Nicholson

$250 $0
Raised Remaining


This project will provide a year of school for Nicholson. Nicholson is 12 years old. His father fell ill and died shortly after the earthquake, and his mother was left without any way of caring for Nicholson and his two brothers, so she brought him to the orphanage. He's a love, mature boy who takes great care of his two younger brothers and deserves the chance to thrive in school.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

As an orphan, Nicholson is among the most vulnerable of Haitian children. There are no free schools in Port au Prince available, so the orphanage must employ its own teachers and run its own school. Lack of education locks kids like Nicholson into a cycle of poverty. Ensuring access to school not only improves children's lives, but strengthens Haitian communities in the long-term.

How will this project solve this problem?

Nicholson has lived his whole life in poverty. He needs a quality education to find a prosperous future. Your donations will give Nicholson that education and set him on the road to a brighter tomorrow.

Potential Long Term Impact

Access to education will give Nicholson the skills he needs to find a stable job and escape poverty when he's older.

Provide a safe home for Haitian Orphans
This project provides a safe home for 27 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 3 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. project reportread updates from the field
