This project will help 50 vulnerable young children and adolescents from 9 rural communities of South East of Haiti, who are victims of domestic servitude and other forms of exploitation, to complete their basic education through our accelerated education program. They will learn technical trades for create self-sufficient life and to regain their self-esteem through psychosocial activities for their full reintegration in their communities.
More than a hundred children living in servitude have already returned to their families through our special Education Program (accelerated Education program) to enable such children to complete primary school in three (3) years. But after the basic cycle, they did not have the opportunity to continue their traditional schooling or learn a trade. Through this project, we will help 50 children and young people to achieve both objectives and facilitate a better integration into their communities.
Through this project, the Foundation will provide Education, Free more children from slavery and abuse and Help these children and adolescents to become well integrated into their communities and develop their self-esteem. By empowering youth, we are protecting them and their future children from domestic slavery, a plight all too common for children from Haiti's rural areas. Education is the key to end slavery in Haiti, and this project will safeguard communities from this abusive practice
These teenagers will learn and then manufacture handicrafts which they can sell, providing them with an income. Three (3) communities will each have a craft production workshop where young people will continue to produce, enhance their learning and develop their talent. A committee will be formed in each community to support the teenagers and help them sell their products. Their future will be more assured. This will decrease the risk for parents to continue to send them in servitude
