Give Wisly a Year of School

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)
Vetted

Summary

This project will provide a full year of education for 12 year old Wisly. Wisly's dad died in the 2010 earthquake, leaving his mom to look after ten children. She couldn't provide for them all, so she abandoned Wisly and two of his brothers at the HTDC orphanage. Despite this, Wisly is one of the orphanage's most out-going kids - he LOVES posing for photos. With your help, we'll be able to provide him with the education he needs to build a secure future.

Challenge

As an orphan, Wisly is among the most vulnerable of Haitian children. There are no free schools available in Port-au-Prince, so the orphanage must pay for the kids in its care to attend school. Lack of education locks kids like Wisly into a cycle of poverty. Ensuring access to school not only helps Wisly, but strengthens Haitian communities in the long-term

Solution

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

Long-Term Impact

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