For children living in restavek, or children at risk of restavek, school is transformational. School gives them the opportunity to start dreaming about what their future could be like – not just what is in there present.

This year we would love to give every student a new backpack! This means we need 1000 backpacks for the incoming students. We are partnering with a local Haitian backpack supplier to provide backpacks for the children in our program. We love building into the local economy whenever possible, and this is a great way to provide local jobs in Haiti while having backpacks made for the children!

You can make a difference! Send a child (or two!) in restavek a new, made in Haiti, backpack!
