Providing an Education for Haitian Street Children

Dear friend,

As you may already know, REBUILD globally faces a plethora of obstacles daily in Haiti. We address issues ranging from barefoot orphans needing recycled tire sandals to help offset the possibility of contracting worms, to emergency medical care for street children, to providing dignified living wage employment to Haitian mothers -the pillar of our sustainability.

We believe in living-wage employment and we believe in education for all children and youth.  No matter what financial challenges we encounter, through support of friends like you, we are able to meet this mission.  Providing Haitian children with scholarships, allows them to receive an education, targeting the root cause of poverty and preparing them for success in the future.  Additionally, these scholarships provide assistance to families as they get on their feet. These children will grow up with valuable skills that they can aim towards providing for their families and creating a cyclic stabilization of Haiti’s economy.

Currently, we have 7 children in our Street Child program. These are children who are vulnerable to the dangers of the streets, but through your support, they are where they belong – a classroom! By proving support for this program you have created an education haven for these children. It is because of you that these families now have a great deal of hope, a stable household, and a steady food supply. Attached is a photo of Jean and Billy brothers in our program that you are helping to educate.

We hope you will continue to support families in Haiti by purchasing a pair of handmade, recycled tire sandals coming from our workshop! Support us by visiting our online store and purchasing your pair of REBUILDERs today! As always, you can stay up to date on our efforts by following us on facebook and youtube!

Thank you for your generous contributions and commitment to educate vulnerable children,

The REBUILD globally Team
