You Can Help Keep Children in Haiti Safe and Free.
The video above tells the story of Daphney, Robert, and Jessica. Like many rural children, they were unable to attend school. The public school was too far away, and the other private schools charged tuition, which their parents couldn’t afford. Their families decided to send them to live with other families in the city, hoping each child would be sent to school in exchange for a little work around the house. Instead Daphney, Robert, and Jessica were each forced to work all the time, humiliated and abused and never sent to school. Roughly a quarter million Haitian children like these are trapped in this form of modern-day slavery.
