Nathaelle was abandoned at birth and has spent her life living in an orphanage. Despite the challenges she's faced, Nathaelle dreams of becoming a nurse. She always helps take care of the younger kids, and the orphanage staff think of her as a younger sister. Donors like you have already provided the funding we need to keep Nathaelle in school throughout 2013. With your help, she'll keep learning when she starts 8th grade in 2014!
School in Haiti is not free, and if a family cannot pay, their children simply do not attend. Lack of education locks these children in a cycle of poverty. Ensuring access to school not only improves children's lives, but strengthens Haitian communities in the long-term.
Nathaelle has lived her whole life in poverty. Your donation will give Nathaelle the education she needs to ensure she can support herself and find a route of to security. We'll use your donation to pay Nathaelle's school fees, provide books, school supplies, and extra support if she needs it. The education she'll receive will be life changing.
Access to education for children from families who do not have the means to send their children to school means that those children will have the skills they need to find stable jobs and escape the poverty of their families.
