Give Chanini a year of school

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)


This project will provide a full year of education for nine year old Chanini. Before the 2010 earthquake, Chanini was cared for by her grandmother, along with nine other kids. But after the earthquake, their grandmother couldn't afford to look after all ten children, so she left Chanini at the HTDC orphanage. Chanini loves to sing and dance, and she looks forward to school every day. With your help, we'll be able to keep providing her with the education she needs to build a secure future.

As an orphan, Chanini is among the most vulnerable of Haitian children. There are very few free schools available in Port-au-Prince, so the orphanage must pay for the kids in its care to attend school. It can't afford to do this without your support. Lack of education locks kids like Chanini into a cycle of poverty. Ensuring access to school not only helps Chanini, but strengthens Haitian communities in the long-term.


Chanini has lived her whole life in poverty. She needs a quality education to find a prosperous future. Your donations will give her that education, and set her on the road to a brighter tomorrow. Note that the orphanage is home to around thirty children. Donations to this project will cover Chanini's school costs over a year, but will be spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn.

Long-Term Impact

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