Research on Children’s Satisfaction with Financial Situation
In Haiti, many poor rural families send them to live as domestic servants in the homes of urban families. This is out of hope that they will have a better life. These children, mostly girls are vulnerable to emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. People call these children Restavek.
Haiti Now used data from the FAFO Research Foundation and the Institut Haitian del’ Enfance. The data is from 2013 - 2014. Subsequently, Haiti Now has published this data online in an interactive manner. Click here to review this data in more detail. Particularly, it shows other dimensions of the living conditions of Restavek in Haiti.
Another Option for Abandoned Girls in Domestic Servitude
Haiti Now ‘s mission is to give Restavek girls the ability to:
- leave domestic servitude, and
- prepare for the future they and their parents had hoped for.
Our current goal is to build a residential school for Restavek girls. We intend to support these girls so they can build a healthy and financially sound future under one roof.
Specifically, in this residential school, girls will receive:
- an accelerated education,
- health care,
- emotional support,
- arts and sports, and
- healthy socialization with peers and adults.
Envision the opportunity for these girls reaching their potential at our residential school, and join us to build this facility.
