$250 to send Bodlina for School for a Year

This project will provide a full year of education for Bodlina. Bodlina was brought to the orphanage with her brother, Bodlyson, after her father was killed in a motorcycle accident and her mother died of an illness. She's a lovely, energetic girl who loves to play with the other kids at the orphanage. With your help, we'll be able to provide her with the education she needs to build a secure future.


As an orphan, Bodlina is among the most vulnerable of Haitian children. There are no free schools in Port au Prince available, so the orphanage must employ its own teachers and run its own school. Lack of education locks kids like Bodlina into a cycle of poverty. Ensuring access to school not only improves children's lives, but strengthens Haitian communities in the long-term.


Bodlina 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.

Long-Term Impact

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