BENEFITING: POVERTY RESOLUTIONS INC
During the year 2014, there are several projects that Poverty Resolutions wants to complete. Here is just one of our immediate needs:
Poverty Resolutions has developed plans for a men’s transition center in Haiti. As they have become more involved in Haiti, they now understand a major problem that needs a solution. They have discovered that children are often well cared for by orphanages until they are 18 years of age. However, once these children reach the age of 18, they are forced to leave and must figure out life on their own. Due to these teenagers having very little knowledge on the important aspects of the real world, the transition from orphanage to independent living leaves these young adults stranded in a cycle of poverty that continues throughout generations.
The vision of Poverty Resolutions’ transition center is to teach these young men skills for lifelong success, enable them to learn under an older mentor from the community, and provide means for these men to connect with others. What Poverty Resolutions envisions as a transition center down in Haiti is very similar to the concept of a vocational school here in America. For example, these men would have the opportunity to learn finances, receive business education, and discover trades such as welding, sewing, farming, masonry, and the like. If these young men can learn a variety of trades and skills, they will have a chance to earn a steady income; thus, having means to support their own family.
By the summer of 2014, Poverty Resolutions hopes to have the first dormitory, bathrooms, and the director's house completed. They hope to have eight students, two leaders, and one director in place at the transition center as well. Poverty Resolutions clearly cannot complete this vision on their own. They need your support, financial donations, and help in all aspects of this process. Please consider allowing the young men and the future generations of Haiti to be educated, equipped, and encouraged in their journey to live successfully and to give back to their country. Donate today towards Poverty Resolutions' Transition Center.
