A year of school for Stevenson

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)

Summary

Stevenson has lived his whole life in poverty. His parents never got to go to school, so they weren't able to find steady work. School in Haiti isn't free, so without work Stevenson's parents couldn't afford to send him to school. Donors like you have already provided the funding we need to keep Stevenson in school through the end of the 2014 school year. With your, help, he'll stay in school and be the first in his family to be educated to 18.

Challenge

School in Haiti is not free, and if a family cannot pay, their children simply do not attend. Lack of education locks these children in a cycle of poverty. Ensuring access to school not only improves children's lives, but strengthens Haitian communities in the long-term.

Solution

Stevenson has lived his whole life in poverty. Your donation will give Stevenson the education he needs to ensure he can support himself and find a route of to security. We'll use your donation to pay Stevenson's school fees, provide books, school supplies, and extra support if he needs it. The education he'll receive will be life changing.

Long-Term Impact

Access to education for children from families who do not have the means to send their children to school means that those children will have the skills they need to find stable jobs and escape the poverty of their families.
