This project will provide a full year of education for 13 year old Paolo. Paolo used to live with his dad but their house was destroyed in the 2010 earthquake. His dad received a tent in a camp but the camp wasn't safe for Paolo and so his dad brought him to the orphanage. He hasn't returned since. Paolo wants to become a doctor, or a hip-hop star! With your help, we'll be able to provide him with the education he needs to fulfill his dreams.
As an orphan, Paolo 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 Paolo into a cycle of poverty. Ensuring access to school not only helps Paolo, but strengthens Haitian communities in the long-term.
Paolo 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.
Access to education will give Paolo the skills he needs to find a stable job and escape poverty when he's older.
