All across America, young children are sharpening their pencils, cracking open fresh new notebooks, and heading back to school.
But in rural communities throughout Haiti, something very different is happening.
Children who are too poor to go to school and who have no access to schools are being sent away to cities. But instead of better access to education, many get trapped in a life of servitude – a modern form of child slavery called restavèk.
Thanks for all you do to promote liberty, dignity and hope for the people of Haiti.
