Send Christelle to School for a Year

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)


This project will provide a full year of education for Christelle. Christelle isn't sure how old she is - we think she's around 9. Christelle's dad was forced to abandon her after her mom left and he couldn't afford to care for her anymore. Christelle was sick and malnourished when she arrived at the 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.

As an orphan, Christelle is among the most vulnerable of Haitian children. There are no free schools in Port au Prince available, so the orphanage must pay for the kids in its care to attend school. 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.


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.

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.
