Beatrice* (1961)

Age: 13

Beatrice was sent to live in restavek with her aunt two years ago, following Hurricane Matthew. They live in a tent-like home with six others. Beatrice is in the home for the purpose of doing the chores throughout the day, including washing dishes, cleaning outside, and sweeping.

Her advocate, Samuel, describes her as talkative and focused on school. Beatrice likes to learn French and play hide and seek. When she grows up, Beatrice would like to become a nurse so that she can help support her family.
