A State of Poverty
“Poverty reduces a child’s readiness for school because it leads to poor physical health and motor skills, diminishes a child’s ability to concentrate and remember information, and reduces attentiveness, curiosity and motivation.” (The Effects of Poverty on Education, ChildFund International)
When a child is living as a Restavek, they are in a state of poverty. Consequently, they eat much less and engage in a great deal of hard labor.
Haiti Now’s Efforts
Haiti Now has provides textbooks, tuition, and school supplies to Restavek children. This way, they are more likely to succeed in school. But if their lives are not reshaped, learning and progress toward a better life are difficult. Therefore, they need to leave their horrid conditions.
