Send Nephky to School for a Year

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)


This project will provide a full year of education for Nephky. Nephky is thirteen years old and, after his dad died, Nephky's mom couldn't afford to care for him and brought him to the HTDC orphanage. Despite all he's been through Nephky is a helpful and responsible child who loves to draw. With your help, we'll be able to provide Nephky with the education he needs to build a secure future.

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


Nephky 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.

Long-Term Impact

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