Restoring hope for youth in Haiti
There are estimated to be about 760 orphanages in Haiti
About 32,000 children in Haiti live in orphanages
By Haitian law, children age out of the orphan care system at 18 years old
Recent studies show that youth who grow up in institutions are 40 times more likely to have a criminal record, 10 times more likely to enter prostitution, & 500 times more likely to commit suicide.
