Many children in Haiti are victims of child trafficking, child prostitution, child enslavement. In 2000, we started affiliating ourselves with the orphanages and school where the population is very impoverished. On January 12, 2010, a devastating earthquake with a magnitude of 7.0 struck Haiti, killing more than 160,000 people,  displacing close to 1.5 million others, and destroyed over 5000 schools leaving the country ruined.

Over 61,500 displaced people, officials said, after the storm pushed the sea into fragile coastal villages, ruined plantations and drowned animals. some of which were only now being contacted. . The scars of the tragedy remain all over Haiti. Our school, Clermont International Academy was destroyed during that earthquake and left over 150 children out of school.
