OUR VALUES

Children's Education

Today, 57 million children are not enrolled in school due to poverty, lack of teachers and classrooms, and other obstacles. We work towards achieving universal primary education. One child at a time. 

Primary education is critical in the development of children and their communities. Not only does education develop important intellectual and social skills, education breaks down socioeconomic barriers and creates opportunities for children who would otherwise lack them. Today, 57 million children are not enrolled in school due to poverty, lack of teachers and classrooms, and other obstacles. We work towards achieving universal primary education. One child at a time.

The Haitian Ministry of Education calls for closing of all schools now as the invisible enemy is looming danger over Haiti. Hand International Inc’s education team will be assisting the ministry in assessing schools and identifying areas for temporary learning spaces. The organization will also train teachers in psychological support.

Emergency Relief

As of May 2020, there are over 5.4 million cases of COVID-19 worldwide, a number which rises daily.

When a national or global crisis strikes, communities with high rates of poverty are particularly vulnerable due to a lack of resources and infrastructure. Hand International Inc has created an emergency relief fund to be able to quickly and appropriately respond to crisis situations such as natural disasters, conflicts, epidemics or pandemics, food insecurity, and drought.

The devastating Corona virus will leave more than 1 million people in Cap Haitien, and surrounding areas in desperate
need — and will exact a heavy toll on Haiti’s children. They are weak and marginalized. Amid it all, they are more vulnerable to diseases, injury, abuse and exploitation.
Meanwhile, their future opportunities are also in jeopardy, as Haiti’s education system lies in ruins.

The scale of this disaster is unprecedented in Haiti, and the needs of children and families have far exceeded available supplies and logistical capacity. An estimated 200,000 families (1 million people) are homeless. The majority are living in overcrowded, informal settlements with poor sanitation; unable to access the basic necessities — food,
water, shelter and health services — without assistance. Others have fled to the countryside, increasing the burden on impoverished rural communities.

Human Traffic / Restavek

Over 40 million people are currently enslaved throughout the world.

Human trafficking is monstrous; it is a universal issue that frequently impacts the most vulnerable individuals—women and children among us. According to The United Nations  human trafficking is the act of recruiting, transporting, transferring, harboring, or receiving a person by means of coercion, deception or abuse of vulnerability, for the purpose of exploitation. This ghastly practice made more modern slaves out of children. A whopping 1 in 4 children fall victims of this horrific—inhumane crime, joining the estimated 40.3 million people living in modern slavery today around the world.

This heinous exploitation violates people’s right and dignity. 79% of the victims are women and children according to the U.N. They have been used as sex slaves, child soldiers, and induced in forced labor.

In Haiti, over 200,000 children are victims of modern day slavery called: RESTAVEK, meaning stayed with. Restavèk children are abused, beaten, sexually assaulted and put to harsh labor domestically. According to the 2013 Global Slavery Index, Haiti was ranked number 2  in the world in prevalence of modern slavery by population behind Mauritania.

Seeing an activity that brings all the layers of society together is a great privilege for us: there are children, adults and elders here. This is proof that sport does not exclude anyone. We hope to see other disciplines such as a football and basketball championship. We were hopeless before Hand International. We did not see where the sport will take us and why we were practicing. Now we can see clearly and understand why we are practicing. We can travel, we can compete in a safe manner, our confidence level is boosted. It’s been years since we have such activities like this one to help the youth. We salute HAND with all our hearts.

Shedly Innocent

It has been an eternity since the youth of this community has been living without hope. Hand International is a life saver and brings hope in our hearts. I am personally indebted to this organization in that, it has helped me to be in school with full tuition paid. I did not how I was going to be sent to school because my parents did not have the means for me to continue my education. However, when HAND organization came into the seen, I was elated to hear they have a program where they provide full school tuition and uniform to students. I am pleased to be a beneficiary of this program and now, I am confident that I will be able to finish high school.

Vanessa Jean Charles

We would like to thank the speaker Mr Grégory Max MICHEL, program coordinator for Hand International Inc for thinking of sharing with us knowledge and with the organization Hand International for orienting their goal towards youth. I hope that this will continue to be the case so that every child has the chance to learn better and be better in the future.

Sonia Pierre

For a kid that has been consistently bullied and afraid all the time, my whole life has changed since the program that HAND International had established: Making Heroes Off Of The Streets. As someone who was on the street for 2 years, I had lost all hope of the future. In my country, once your situation starts taking a turn for bad, it will continue diving deep down in the darkest pit. But this wonderful organization has found me and gave me an opportunity to feel like I am worthy and valuable. Now I am a champion and a black belt in karate. I have stronger discipline, I am not bullied anymore, in fact, I am now helping younger kids against bullies. Thank you HAND International Inc for creating a new me, giving me a hope I had lost!
