Send Noldy to School for a Year

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)


This project will provide a full year of education for 6 year old Noldy. Noldy arrived at the HTDC orphanage in 2010 with his brother and sister. His dad made the heart breaking decision to leave Noldy at the orphanage after his wife died in the earthquake, leaving him with eight children he couldn't afford to care for. With your help, we'll be able to provide Noldy with the education he needs to build a secure future.

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


Noldy 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 Noldy the skills he needs to find a stable job and escape poverty when he's older.
