Haitian Children Should Be Students, Not Slaves

Older Haitian children in rural communities who haven't had the chance to begin school are often excluded from ever starting school. Schools generally reserve 1st grade for young children. This means that these older kids not only grow up illiterate, they are at great risk for being sent away by their families into domestic servitude where they often face severe abuse and neglect. Beyond Borders helps Haitian schools develop accelerated education classes where these older students complete two years of school each year. Eventually they catch up and are mainstreamed with students their age. Not only does this education greatly improve future prospects for these children, it generally prevents parents from making the decision to send their children away into servitude.

You Can Be the Difference Between a Child Being Enslaved or in School

Your support allows Beyond Borders to help more rural schools develop accelerated education classes designed just for these over-aged children. Not only are disadvantaged children finally receiving an education, but the risks they face to being sent away and trapped in domestic slavery is greatly reduced. Some children who have already been sent away and enslaved are rescued by their parents and brought home so they can be enrolled in these special classes.

The Broader Context of this Effort

The goal in each community is to move over several years to a place where all children in the community are starting school by age six and able to complete at least primary school. We also invest in improving the quality of education offered by schools in these communities. Education programming prepares students to build better lives and stronger communities by focusing on skills that have immediate application outside the classroom.
