Keep Wilson in school for a year

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

Summary

This project will provide a year of education for fourteen year old Wilson. Wilson was brought to the orphanage by his grandparents. They made the difficult choice to give him up because they couldn't afford to feed or educate him, and they wanted him to have a bright future. Wilson is one the orphanage's best students - he simply loves school. With your help, we'll be able to provide him with the education he needs to build a secure future.

Challenge

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

Solution

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