Keep Christelle in school for a year

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)
Keep Christelle in school for a year

Summary

This project will provide a year of education for Christelle. Christelle isn't sure how old she is - we think she's around 14. Her dad was forced to abandon her after Christelle's mom left and he couldn't afford to care for her. Christelle was sick and malnourished when she arrived at the HTDC orphanage, but now she's looking forward to tomorrow. With your help, we'll be able to provide her with the education she needs to build a secure future.

Challenge

As an orphan, Christelle 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 Christelle into a cycle of poverty. Ensuring access to school not only helps Christelle, but strengthens Haitian communities in the long-term.

Solution

Christelle 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 Christelle'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 Christelle the skills she needs to find a stable job and escape poverty when she's older.
