Who We Are
In 2010, Haiti was struck by a devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake. Already suffering from severe poverty, many Haitians became more vulnerable than ever. This was especially the case for the swelling numbers of abandoned, orphaned and domestically enslaved children and youth left to fend for themselves in the ensuing chaos.
In response, D2C was established (2012) to provide a stable Family Home for a group of orphaned and abandoned children. The Family Home focuses on the children’s education and empowerment. D2C also created community education programs that provide many local youth with the skills needed to strengthen their financial independence and break the cycle of extreme poverty.
Devoted to Children's (D2C) mission is to meet the needs of vulnerable children in the village of Cayes Jacmel, Haiti and to provide them with educational opportunities for a better future. D2C works with the local community to create sustainable and long-term youth-oriented projects that aim to end the cycle of poverty.
Devoted to Children (D2C) is a small 501(c)3 nonprofit organization focused on supporting the needs of vulnerable children in Cayes Jacmel, Haiti and providing them with educational opportunities for a better future. D2C was founded in order to address the immediate and long-term needs of the Cayes Jacmel community’s most at-risk children - including abandoned and orphaned children, as well as former restaveks (child slaves). In addition to providing physical needs such as shelter, nutritious food and clothing, the D2C Family Home focuses on initiatives that aim to support the children’s overall psycho-social well-being and growth into future leaders who will be able to give back to their community.
At its inception in 2012, D2C focused primarily on the founding and operation of a long-term family home for a small number of vulnerable children identified by the local community of Cayes Jacmel. By 2015, D2C expanded its mission to include programs focused on education, mental health and livelihoods.
As the D2C organization continues to grow, so too do the children and youth that it serves. D2C wants to ensure that as these youths reach adulthood, they will not only have the education, but also the professional skills and network to help strengthen their economic independence, build community capacity to soften the impact of future shocks, and break the poverty cycle that plagues much of the country.
