This project will provide a full year of education for Wisly. 12 year old Wisly's dad died in the earthquake, leaving his mom to look after ten children. She couldn't provide for them, so she abandoned Wisly and two of his brothers at the orphanage. Wisley is one of the orphanage's most out-going kids - he LOVES posing for photos. With your help, we'll be able to provide him with the education he needs to build a secure future.


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


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