Jean-Rodly is a kind boy who is excited to be learning in school.  At His Outreach for Learning and Development, we believe education is the key to breaking the bonds of poverty.  The children in the HOLD home attend school daily where we are equipping them with necessary tools and skills to be successful in life after the orphanage.  This is rare because many children in Haiti never even go to school; instead they are put to work at a very young age.  We have plans to transition the children into family style living in a small cottage where they will also begin learning a specific trade.

Let's look at all the children.

God has provided the property for transitional homes that will begin preparing the older children to be successful when they leave the orphanage.  The older children will be transitioned into a cottage with six to eight children and a house parent.  They will learn how to care for a home and they will have some family responsibilities.  They will be taught how to tend a garden, raise animals and eventually learn a vocational skill that will help them be self-sufficient when they leave the Home.
