Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Through years of natural disasters and corruption, both from within and from outside, generations of Haitians have become 'stuck' in a cycle of poverty. 80% of the population lives below the poverty line, on less than $2/day. Lack of education, self-determination, and opportunity have further entrenched this way of life.
Educate. Empower. Doors are opening in Haiti - for those that have the skills training to be employable, to become self-sufficient, to have the opportunities. The youth within Little Footprints programs will have the necessary basic education and your help in providing skills training is tangible, provides REAL results for REAL jobs. Individuals, families, communities will benefit from the examples these skilled youth will provide into the future.
This project, vocational skills training, will be the turning point toward self-sufficiency, toward self-determination. Up to 20 youth will be enrolled in training, ranging from 3 months to 1 year. The impact will be realized by not only the individual taking the training, but the family, friends and community they live in. Now and into the future. Education is forever. Opportunity can make it happen. This is how real change occurs. One person at a time. Help us break the cycle of poverty.
