TiLekòl Mòn means “little mountain school” in creole. Statistics say that 50 percent of children in Haiti do not attend school. (World Bank 2013) In the mountains, this is much lower.  Because of the lack of schools in the mountains, many of the families feel they have no choice but to send their children to “work” for other families in the villages in exchange for the opportunity to attend school.  This separates families and most of the time puts the children in less than desirable situations.  Hands for Haiti is currently building a “peasant” school deep in the mountains to keep these children home.  The education they have will give them the tools they need to succeed in their lives and hope for their future.
