On behalf of Nicholson, "Thank You" so much!

Thanks so much for helping to provide a year of school for Nicholson.

Fourteen year old Wilkenson lost his parents in the 2010 earthquake. After his parents died his grandmother tried to care for him and his brothers, but she couldn't afford to feed them. So she was forced to abandon them at the HTDC orphanage.

But with so many other needs, like food, to worry about, the orphanage couldn’t provide Nicholson with an education.

Without an education, Nicholson’s future looked bleak. Nicholson is a very helpful child, who always wants to do his best. But without basic literacy and numeracy, he would almost certainly have been doomed to a life of poverty.

But Nicholson is lucky - he has you in his life.

Your fantastic generosity means that we’ll be able to keep Nicholson in school and learning the skills he needs to build a brighter tomorrow. Nicholson been doing really well in school, but if he needs extra help we’ll also be there to get him the tutoring he needs.

We’ll be able to support Nicholson because you chose to give. There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Nicholson. Thanks so much.

We’ll keep updating you about Nicholson and all his classmates through this project’s parent page, Provide a Safe Home for Haitian Orphans. If you ever have any questions about how we're using your donation, please email We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again, and very kind regards!
