In Haiti, up to 450,000 children live as domestic servants. Lejita was one of those children. Thankfully, after a decade in servitude, she began attending school at CWS-supported FOPJ and was able to return home to her immediate family.

In Nicaragua, CWS partner INPRHU works to protect and improve the quality of life for children.

Nearly 400 children work in Managua's Huembes market alone each day. The market is a dangerous place for many children, especially girls. Nearly 2,000 children and youth participate in after-school programs that INPRHU conducts in the five main markets in Managua.

Helping adults learn to read enables them to turn a corner from poverty to prosperity fairly quickly. Literacy classes remove one of the biggest obstacles to providing for their families.
