D2C provides a long-term home and lifelong family for eight children who were abandoned, orphaned, or enslaved (restavek). In addition to loving care, shelter, nutritious food and clothing, the children are provided with the best available education to help support their future.
Unlike traditional orphanages, children are adopted into the D2C Family and remain in their community, raised within their own culture by Haitians. (D2C employs a full-time Haitian staff of six people to care for our children, providing jobs for locals.)
The most important result of this Family Home is that the children are part of a family rather than residing in an institution. It is our hope that through the opportunities provided them, these children will develop into leaders and give back to their community in the future.
