Rescue One is a Christian organization that works through Christian churches in Haiti. Each church has a committee that chooses a coordinator to head its program.
The program provides tuition for the local school, a school uniform and a daily meal for each child we serve. Sometimes having their child fed and educated allows parents to keep their child at home and not release him/her into the restavec system. Students attend day school and return to their homes in the afternoon. By limiting our program to one child per family, we are able to have an impact on more families.
The children also have an opportunity to attend a week of Christian summer camp where they participate in Bible studies, learn life skills, receive age appropriate sex education and enjoy a week of fun.
The churches use their contact with the children’s families to show Christian mercy, provide educational information and enfold the family into their community.
