Want To Make A Difference? Act Now!


At the end of November, 2010, I attended an Education Cluster meeting, a meeting of the minds, of representatives from organizations about education in Haiti. This cluster is led by a UNICEF representative whose job it is to coordinate these meetings. At this meeting I requested assistance from both World Vision and UNICEF in getting some education and play kits for our residence for orphans. The education kits have notebooks, pencils, pens, etc. and the play kits have a volleyball net, volleyballs, soccer balls, and other sports equipment. TODAY IS MARCH 16TH, 2011, AND AFTER REPEATED E-MAILS, PHONE CALLS, AND MORE, H.E.R.O. HAS RECEIVED NOTHING!!!!!

So, do you really want to help make a difference in the lives of street children and orphans? Well, then you can do the following:

Write an e-mail to the following people stating that you are disappointed with their failure to help H.E.R.O. get one education kit and one play kit. Please CC me on any e-mails that you send. You can talk about our program, what we do, and ask them why they can’t do anything for us despite the fact that they are Multi-Million dollar organizations! You don’t have to spend one dollar to make a difference here, just be a voice for the voiceless. Be a voice for the street children and orphans of Haiti.

Send your e-mails to:

World Vision

Josephine Teng    

Valerie Noiset     


Kristel Tonstad    

Mohammed Fall  

Virginia Perez      

Ganddrey Millorme

Here are some pictures of the amazing children that H.E.R.O. is helping in Haiti. Just by sending some e-mails, you too can make a difference in the lives of the children below. Please be that voice for them, because apparently my voice just isn’t big enough.

An Education Program Update
An Education Program Update

Hello everyone! I thought today would be a good time to provide an update regarding our Education Program for Street Children. We have gone from an enrollment of 24 children before January, to now having over 68 children enrolled. The students range in age from 6-20 years old and are in 1st through 4th grade. So, you can see that we have a lot of work to do to make sure that our students leave our program academically successful!

Additionally, we recently purchased school books for every child in the program. Each grade was able to select three textbooks that the teachers felt were appropriate for the students. We chose textbooks that teach children how to write, read, and complete basic math skills. We are starting with these 3 fundamental core subjects, and will hopefully increase the number of textbooks for each student as we progress through the school year.

Furthermore, we were also able to purchase uniforms for 20 students that had started participating in the program since October of last year, and students that have had great attendance since the beginning of the year. As a result, other students who have not received their uniforms are incentivized to come to school every day.

We are so grateful for the 24 children that have been sponsored through our sponsorship program. The sponsorship helps us to pay for uniforms, school books and supplies, as well as a nutritious daily meal. Union School, a private school here in Port-au-Prince has invited their classes, 3rd-12th grade to sponsor our students, and they have come through, sponsoring 12 of our children!

It has been a great month for the Education Program! We will be even more pleased when as a result of our program, our students become academically successful! As always, thank you for your continued support, and helping us to make a difference in the lives of children in Haiti.
