This project will provide a year of education for Gusline. Gusline was just three when she was found wandering the streets alone after the earthquake. Her parents are presumed dead and the orphanage is now legally responsible for her. Gusline is very traumatised by the circumstances surrounding her arrival at the orphanage, and for a long time she was quiet and ill. But now, she plays with the other kids and loves school. With your help, we'll be able to provide her with the education she needs.
As an orphan, Gusline 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 Gusline into a cycle of poverty. Ensuring access to school not only helps Gusline, but strengthens Haitian communities in the long-term.
Gusline 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.
Access to education will give Gusline the skills she needs to find a stable job and escape poverty when she's older.
