Who We Are
Since 2010, Haiti-Now has been dedicated to improving the lives of impoverished children in Haiti through education. We partnered with a community school and established a successful Book Bank, distributing thousands of text books to hundreds of disadvantaged children. We provided literacy interventions, teacher training, tuition, housing, healthcare, and food assistance. Working primarily with restavek children allowed us to more fully understand the trauma they endured, the complex forces shaping their lives, and the insufficient assistance they received. Organizations working on behalf of restavek children have tended to focus on raising awareness, engaging host families, encouraging education, and a variety of short-term solutions. But it wasn’t enough. An entirely new model was necessary.
