Send Wikenson to School for a Year

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)
Vetted

Summary

This project will provide a full year of education for Wikenson. Wikenson's mother passed away in 2009, and his father died of cholera in 2010. He was left living on the streets until a friend of his family brought him to the HTDC orphanage. When he arrived, Wikenson had never been to school before, but he's clearly a very smart young man. With your help, we'll be able to provide him with the education he needs to build a secure future.

Challenge

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

Solution

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