Project against child slavery

Child slavery is a sad tradition in Haiti, and the situation has worsened since the earthquake of January 2012.  Orphaned children roam the streets of Port-au-Prince. They are homeless and must struggle to survive. Many become the victims of unscrupulous adults. They pick up these children from the street and sell them to wealthier families. They are exploited, abused and often sexually assaulted.

The Salesian Sisters, who have been working with the charitable organization 'social network south tyrol' for years, have built a large centre for homeless children in Croix-des-Bouquets, a district on the edge of the capital. Today, this centre is home to 150 children from the ages of 6 to 12. For the first time in their lives, they are experiencing security, love and protection. They attend school and are looked after by psychologists and educators.

They need our financial support in order to keep their project alive.
