Keep Kenson in school for a year

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

Summary

This project will provide a year of education for eight year old Kenson. Kenson's mum is alive but she's homeless and and couldn't afford to feed him or keep him safe. So, she was forced to abandon Kenson at the HTDC orphanage. Kenson was heartbroken when his mum left him, but he's now started to laugh and giggle again. With your help, we'll be able to provide him with the education he needs to build a secure future.

Challenge

As an orphan, Kenson 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. Lack of education locks kids like Kenson into a cycle of poverty. Ensuring access to school not only helps Kenson, but strengthens Haitian communities in the long-term.

Solution

Kenson has lived his whole life in poverty. He needs a quality education to find a prosperous future. Your donations will give him that education and set him on the road to a brighter tomorrow. Note that the orphanage is home to around thirty children. Donations to this project will cover Kenson'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 Kenson the skills he needs to find a stable job and escape poverty when he's older.
