Universal Children’s Day

Today, on Universal Children’s Day, I want to share this short video with you from our colleagues at the Child Labor Coalition.

At Beyond Borders we are proud to be members of the Child Labor Coalition and to help lead the movement to end child domestic servitude in Haiti.

In the coming days you’ll have the opportunity to make a dramatic difference for children trapped in domestic servitude in Haiti with the launch of this year’s Schools Not Slavery campaign.

In the past 12 months, people like you helped to free 104 girls and boys in Haiti, by becoming Schools Not Slavery partners.

We’re grateful for this outpouring of generosity and the difference it has made in the lives of some of Haiti’s most vulnerable children.

Although this video doesn’t mention it, child domestic servitude is one of the most common forms of forced labor that children face globally, and Haiti has one of the highest prevalences of it.

That’s why this year we hope to expand Schools Not Slavery so that we can free even more children — but we can’t do it without you.

I hope you can join us when we launch Schools Not Slavery later this week. Thank you so much for caring about vulnerable children in Haiti.

With deep gratitude,

David Diggs, Director
