Challenge

Children with disabilities in Haiti face severe discrimination, making them some of the most vulnerable and marginalised people in the country. Consequently, children with disabilities are often abandoned by their parents who are unable to provide the full time, specialist care the children need.

Solution

The Maison de Benediction is a leading disability centre in northern Haiti. It provides life-transforming respite care for children with disabilities and supports their families. In addition, the Maison team provide foster care for abandoned children and vocational training for older individuals, encouraging workplace inclusion for people with disabilities. The Maison's motto is 'Disability is not inability' and we work every day to show this is 100% true.

Long-Term Impact

Thanks to the Maison's efforts within the wider community, we've seen stigma against children with disabilities decrease, schools enrolling children with disabilities for the first time and children receiving life-transforming mobility aids like wheelchairs and much more. Our goal is to maintain and develop this pioneering programme.
