Host a Freedom Sunday
Join Restavek Freedom in observing Freedom Sunday and build pathways out of restavek, one child at a time!
WHAT IS FREEDOM SUNDAY?
Freedom Sunday is an opportunity for your church or faith group to learn more about the issue of restavek and join believers across the US in bringing freedom and hope to enslaved and at-risk children in Haiti.
HOW CAN MY CONGREGATION PARTICIPATE?
- Host a Freedom Sunday service:
Join the movement to end child slavery in Haiti by participating in Freedom Sunday at your church! We will equip you with all the resources you need to observe Freedom Sunday with your congregation, whether your church or faith group chooses to participate virtually or in person. This can include a short video, language to include in your church newsletter and/or bulletin, and a representative from Restavek Freedom to be present at your Freedom Sunday service.
- Join our community of Freedom Sponsors:
Encourage groups, families, and individuals in your congregation to give freedom and hope to enslaved and at-risk children in Haiti by becoming Freedom Sponsors. With a small gift each month, a Freedom Sponsor provides a specific child with a dedicated advocate, an education, and hope for their future.
- Spread the word:
Do you know other churches or faith groups who would be interested in hosting their own Freedom Sunday service? Help us spread the word! Share this page with those you know and follow us on social media for more Freedom Sunday updates and information.

Not yet a sponsor?
You can give freedom and hope to a child trapped in slavery or at high risk of slavery. For $40/month or $480/year, you’ll bring FREEDOM from isolation, illiteracy, and despair. You’ll partner with a Haitian Child Advocate to provide a child with support, love, education, and hope!
