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.

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 we need 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 month. Thank you so much for caring about vulnerable children in Haiti.

With deep gratitude,

David Diggs, Director & Co-Founder, Beyond Borders
