Dream of a Child
April 18, 2017
When you're a parent living in Haiti and you find yourself in a desperate situation what do you do?
Haiti has 2 common options:
1. Place your child in an orphanage.
(This option gives the child a chance at eating daily, an education, and a future. Haiti orphanage's are full of *social orphans.)
2. Send your child to be a **Restavek
Both of these options are a permanent solution to a sometimes temporary situation. Dream of a Child has now introduced a third option.
3. Place your child with Dream of a Child
What is Dream of a Child?
Dream of a Child is a temporary solution with long lasting effects. Offering a loving safe environment to vulnerable children by standing in the gap for their parent(s) until the child can be unified with his parent again.

*Social Orphan- a child that has no adults looking after him, even though one or both parents may be alive.
**Restavek- a child in Haiti sent by his parent to work for a host home as a domestic servant- a slave.
