Preparing Children to Lead the Change
Having a stable home life is important for a child to thrive and succeed in life. Ask almost any child at Place of Hope in Haiti about what their life was like before coming here and they will tell you that it was a combination of poverty, lack of an education, having no parental love, fear, hopelessness and loneliness. Now they feel they have a family of brothers and sisters, food on the table, parental love, an education and an opportunity to learn a trade.
At our home, our children receive:
- Access to clean water
- Nutritious meals
- Clean Beds
- Play Time
- Spiritual Development
