Valerie arrived at the Orphanage in September, 2013.  She had been living with neighbors in the city of Port de Paix.  Like many children in Haiti, Valerie was treated very poorly by the family she was living with. Because several children at the HOLD Home recently were reunited with family, room became available for Valerie to be accepted into the Home.  She is very friendly and likes to play with the other children.

Let's look at all the children.

Our HOLD sponsor schools currently go through the 8th grade, but we are excited to announce that several of our HOLD Home residents begin high school in September! In Haiti, when most children reach this age they are already working to earn income for their families.  Or if they are left to fend for themselves, they are working to earn their next meal.  Thankfully at the HOLD Home we value education and understand its importance in overcoming poverty and changing what is considered to be the norm.

HOLD the Children helps support six schools in and surrounding the north coast city of Port de Paix, Haiti.  You are receiving this letter because you are a sponsor of the HOLD school located in the inner city of Port de Paix.  This school is where HOLD the Children was birthed in 2000 and currently where 429 students are registered.  I want to thank you for your years of support.  Many children have benefitted from the education enabled by your generosity and prayers.

The school year will soon come to a close at the HOLD the Children sponsor schools.  Unlike American kids, summer break for the poor does not constitute sleeping late, afternoons at the pool, picnics, or endless hours of video games.  There are no vacations on white sandy beaches or fun packed days at Disney World or other theme parks.  The things we associate with summer break are far different than those of the poor.
