Send Nicholson to school!

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)

Summary

This project will provide a full year of education for 13 year old Nicholson. Nicholson's dad died in the earthquake, and his mom couldn't care for him. She was forced to abandon him and his two younger brothers at the orphanage. Nicholson is a little charmer with a big smile and bigger dreams for the future. With your help, we'll be able to provide him with the education he needs to build a secure future.

Challenge

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