Bethchedade portrait Family: Parents and five siblings

Slum: Cite Soleil, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti


Bethchedade's story
I live with my mother and father and brothers and sisters. My father has no job. The house I am living in does not belong to my family. The house has 2 rooms, is sheet metal, and it is not big enough for everybody to sleep. There is power electricity, but not everyday. My mom uses candles and when she has no money to buy one, we sleep in the dark.
I am charming, pleasant, affectionate, and shy. I understand and am patient. I am a girl who is respectful, sincere, wise, and serious too. I like to eat with other friends when I have food. I dislike abusive people. I hate people annoying me. I love to smile. I think my talent is singing. I sing when I am at church. I often go to Catholic Church. My neighbors say that I sweep and clean the house well.

Work and Education
When I wake up I wash my skin, brush my teeth, I sweep the floor before scrubbing it, make the bed, and take water for my mother to wash clothes.
I finished four years at school. I stopped school in first grade, because my father had no money to send me. I feel sad when I see many kids going to school. Without education, no one can be successful, because education is very important.

Dreams
I care about my studies most and my health is most important in my life. I would like to become a secretary and I imagine I can be successful only if I go to school. Your help will be a good thing for me and my family.

Mid3  portrait Family: I was born in Jeremie, in the Haiti countryside, on July 23, 1998. I have 12 years of age. My mother is dead since 5 years, and my father is dead since 8 years. I came to Port au-Prince when my ‘aunt’ went to Jeremie and saw my living condition. She took me. I am living with Benette for one year. I have no other relatives living near to me.

Slum: Cite Soleil, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti


Midielande's story
I am so kind, honest. I am little girl who likes to share with others. I like to tell the truth and history. I would like to have time to play but I do not have that chance. I would like a friend in the whole world to know I am a restavek who would like to go school one day. Dream My health and my education are the more important things for me in my life. I would like to become a doctor. I can reach my dream if only I am going to school. I would like to find some one to help me with my education and take care of me. That will be a fantastic grace for me, my family and my country.

Work and Education
I never have free time. Everyday I am working. I wash dishes, scrub the floor, and clean the table. For me it’s always at 5 O’ clock that I get up. I go to take water – 10 buckets to fill a drum every day, because the girl, who I live with, is a street vendor. I serve the people who come to eat. When she is finished selling the food I rewash the dishes. In the afternoon I throw garbage away. I never have time to play. I am always busy and tired. I cannot get my rest. I go to bed at 10 O’ clock. I never went to school. How could I go to school because it’s always me who is in charge of all work in the house. I see the other kids are going to school, but me I do not go. I never go to school. I would like to go but they do not sent me. You know a restavek is not treated well. It’s like that the life of a restavek.

Jesula Age: 13

Family: Six brothers and sisters, and my father. My mother died. But I'm the only one who is in Port-au-Prince living with my aunt. The rest of them are with my father in the countryside. I'm the youngest in the family and my dad said it would be better for me to go and live with my aunt.

Slum: Jalouzie, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti


Jesula's story
It is usually headache and stomaches that I have but most of the times I do not take medication for them. Sometimes we eat twice a day but most of the times we only eat once a day and there are some days when she just does not have anything to give to us so we just don't eat. We drink the water that we can find. We have to go outside to go to the bathroom and we do not have any-kind of running water in the house. The water that we drink is not treated. I'm a nice person and I like to play with my friends when they tell me stories and I tell them stories too. but sometimes I get sad when I think about my mom. and my brothers and sisters because I cannot be with them. I live in a small 1room house with my cousins my aunt and her husband. It is very hard because it is very dangerous where it is. We have to climb a lot of big rocks to get there and there is a little corner on hill but we do not have any yard to play. It is a dirt floor and it is covered with stainless steel and it gets very,very hard but we do not have anywhere else so we have to stay there, but it is very unpleasant to live there. We have to go to get the water from outside but we have to buy rain water for 10 Haitian gourds a bucket. We do not have indoor plumbing, and we do not have electricity. We do not have running water or a phone. I do not know how much they pay for the rent per year.

Work and Education
I went to school for 2 years, I cannot read or write very well, and I can count but not really high.

Dreams
My dream is to go to school and get an education and someday become a nurse where I can work and help my father, brothers, sisters my aunt, uncle and my cousins.

Walkine - portrait Family: “My name is Walkine Labonte. I was born on March 8, 1989. I am 19 years of age. I was born in Soleil 21 (in the slum of Cite Soleil, in the capital of Haiti, Port-au-Prince). I have two children. My father died on June 15, 2007 and my mother on November 7, 1994. I have two elder sisters. They are living in Cite Soleil. They are in business. One of them sells mangoes. The other sells water. Their economic situation is so bad that they can’t help me. I don’t have any brothers. I have a younger sister that I am taking care of. We have the same father but not the same mother.

Slum: Cite Soleil, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti


Walkine's story
“I was well-bred. I don’t mind other people’s business. I can set brads for people. I am not stuck up. I like to pray. The thing that I hate the most is that I am too young to have children. I have had my children at a very young age. The first one, I had it at the age of 15. I believe in God because thanks to him I am still alive. I would like my sponsor to know I count on his or her help and will pray that God bless him or her.

Work and Education
I used to go to school. I used to attend schoolEcole Mix Coeur de Jesus. That’s where I did my kindergarten. I quit when I was in third grade. I can read and write a little bit. I don’t have a profession. When I didn’t have children, I used to work as a housekeeper. When I had my two children, I could no longer do this kind of job. I had to go to business. I used to sell lemon, garlic and pepper. I used to do that business from Monday to Friday, in downtown. I used to leave the children with my younger sister. Sometimes, I used to sell a lot, but some other times, I used to sell nothing. I can do other business but I don’t have enough money. I didn’t quit doing that business because I didn’t like it. I had to stop because I ran out of money. Months ago I bought a big can of lemon for $15 Ht [$2.15 US] and I had a benefit of $5Ht [72 cents] that could scarcely help me feed my children.

Dreams
“I like to work. I like to do business. I would like to help my family. I would like to continue my studies. I would like to lean how to sew. I would like to send my younger sister and my four year old son to school. I would like to be able to take good care of them. I would like to have a house.

Lise-portrait Family: I was born on September 9, 2000, in Port au Prince, in the slum of Cite Soleil. I am 9 years old. I never went to school since my childhood, because my parents had no chance to help me with my education. A long time ago she sent me to stay with someone as a child slave. My mother’s name is Manoucheca but I don’t know how old is she. She has four children, but I don’t know my brothers and sisters names. I am the only child of my father. I am living for two years with Marie-Ange. She is the lady that I am living with.

Slum: Cite Soleil, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti


Lise's story
I am a little girl who is kind, intelligent, generous, but I am also shy, and I like to get angry. My personality is: honest, sincere, and respectful. I describe myself as a girl, who likes to share with other people, likes to tell the truth. My little friends say, I am kind girl, I like to play and support others kids. But, I don’t like people who rob my things and beat me. My talents are: Scrub the floor, and take water. Things that people mentioned that I do well are: Wash dishes and Scrub the floor. I admire my shyness and my kindness. I like the way that I am living least about my life. I would like to change my situation one day. I think a slave child should go to school and be treated well but it is not like that. I love to play with my friends but I don’t have time to do it. I am always busy. I would like a friend anywhere in the world to know that I am slave kid who is born in a very poor family. Where I am living I don’t feel at ease but my parents are in the worst situation.

Work and Education
I get up at five o’clock in the morning everyday. First of all, I wash dishes, scrub the floor with a piece of tissue, get water, and I am washing my clothes. Every day, I throw garbage in an empty place. I do that kind of work all time. I go to sleep about 9:30pm. But often I am tired and can’t get enough rest. I don’t go to school, because in my country, most of slave children do not go to school. You have to stay in the house to work, and also you have to work hard. I feel sad when I see most of the kids like me in the area are going to school and me, I don’t go. I don’t know how to read and write. I imagine, without education, no one can achieve their dreams.

To reach my dream, I have to have someone help me with my school and take care of me. I would like to tell you, if you help me get out of this slave situation that I am living, it’s not only me you will help but that will be a great step for my family and also my country.

Mistafa's story
The mother Violita says: “I come from Apricot in Jeremie. I left my countryside in 1995. I came back there in June, 2001. I gave birth to Mistafa, and I came back to Port-au-Prince in the same year. The things don’t march for me because I don’t work and my husband too. We are poor. We still live in extreme poverty. My parents were poor and all my family. I came to Port au Prince to look for a better life. I become poorer because I have too many children. I gave five to be Restaveks and I keep three who are living home. I cannot pay for their school. They are obliged to stay without education. When Mistafa was 5 years old, I was able to afford it, and I paid one year school for her. After that year, I could not pay again. She was obliged to stay home. Mistafa says, “I would like to go to school. In my mind I don’t feel good but I have my beauty: I am friendly, honesty, peaceful, kindly, loved, and sharing. What I admire most is honesty; I think with it you can become an important person in the society. I love to go to school. I love to play with my friends. I like to watch TV, because I love movies. What I like to change is the poverty of my family. That is my dream. It has to happen. I don’t how many years that is going to take. My thought is going to school, have enough food to eat. My feeling is playing with my friends, watch TV, and study my lesson. My habits are: playing with other children on the ground. Dreams

Work and Education
Mistafa says, “My parents did not go to school, they cannot read and write.” Mother Violita says, “I am not working; I am not doing anything to make a living. Every day I am trying to find someone to give me something to eat. Now life is very difficult for me and my children. My husband sometimes going to the sea with a friend to fish. The friend of my husband gives him a few fish and he comes with it. I take the fish and I boil it for the children. Frankly since this morning we haven’t eating anything. We are very hungry. My husband finds a job wherever. But he often does not find one, because job are not easy in Haiti. We don’t have electric power here. There are a lot of rats and bugs. They are very annoying.

Dreams
I care about school because I don’t see how I can go to school in September, then school will open soon, and I know My parents don’t have possibility to send me. I think about it. I love to go to school, and I think it is what makes me happy. I think food is important but school is more important because food is easier to find than education. I would like my mother to find something to do, that can help my mother give us enough food and pay our school. I like to study art, and photo. I love to live with my all sisters and brothers. I would like in the future, all of the children of my family have a place to live in the same house and all of my sisters and brothers go to school.

She is doing nothing, but sometimes she buys salt credit to resell.

Slum: Cite Soleil, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti


Dorce's story
The people don't want to live with me, so when I want to play I hide myself somewhere to play. But if they see me they would hit me by stick. I am a pretty girl, kind intelligent. I am not shy. I’d like to play with other kids but I cannot. It’s that arrived it’s in hiding. I would like to share with other people but I have nothing. I do not like to fifth. I do not like the way I am living. I would like that my life changes someday. I can’t be happy because I have no freedom. It’s for that I would like my life to change. I hope my friend somewhere in the world to know that I am a restavek kid who was born in a family very poor and would like to go to school someday.

Work and Education
I get up at 4 o’clock am. First I wash my face, after wash dishes, scrub the floor, go to take water. I have to fill the drum with water every day. I never have time to rest. In the afternoon I begin again to do the same work. It’s so difficult for me to feel well. I am always tired and I can’t get my rest. I go to bed at 9 o’clock. I never went to school even a day. Education I can’t go to school because a restavek child has no permission to go to school. Every day always working, working, I would like to go to school. It’s my dream. I am feeling sad when I see other kids are going to school. I think without education no one can realize his dream.

Dreams
The things most important in my life are my health and my education. I would like to become a nurse. I imagine if I am going to school I can achieve my dream. For that I have to find someone to help me with my education and take care of me.

Italene-portrait Family: She was born in Peredo (in the south of Haiti, near Jacmel). Her mother’s name is Bertha Moise and father’s name Ileres Sainfils. Italene is a restavek who is living with her aunt Laurette Sainfils in Cite Soleil. She has been living in Cite Soleil for two years. Her parents, who are both farmers, are still living in Jacmel. They grow bananas, corn, rice, potatoes, etc. Italene says: “I am living in terrible poverty in Cite Soleil because my aunt is not working, and she doesn’t have a husband. Every day, we wait from daybreak to sundown for somebody to give us something to eat. Most of the times we wait for nothing. For that somebody never shows up. So, we spend that whole day without anything to eat. I care a lot about school, but I can’t go because of money. I would like to continue with my school activities. For, it has been 2 years since I stopped attending it. And of course, I’d like to go back and live with my family in Jacmel.”

Slum: Cite Soleil, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti


Italene's story
Italene Sainfils is 13 years old, and lives in a very poor part of a slum in Haiti, without her parents. She would be in the 2nd grade, but hasn’t been able to go to school for two years. “Sometimes, we find food to eat. Sometimes we don’t. Usually, we go three days without eating anything. A can of rice with peas is luxury for us. Most of the times, we boil rice with salt and eat it.” “I would like to become a doctor and someone who is ready to help other people who are in poverty, which comes from the bottom of my heart. What I care about the most is to go to school. Because I love school. For, without education you can’t become someone important in a society. I think I can achieve my dreams with your help, support, and advice.

Work and Education
“My aunt doesn’t work.” What does she depend on? “She usually waits for someone to give her some money.” Aunt, Laurette Sainfils says, “I am living in a rental and the lease is $ 400 ht ($55 US) every 6 months. There is not enough space to live here because it has only one room, little room. We have a lot of problem with this house. Now and then, rats, wince or another fest line animal comes in and add intensifies our problem. For example, rats usually come in and tear our clothes to pieces. Moreover, bugs have invaded our bed and bite us when we lie on it. And as a result, we usually get sick. And as one may already know, in Cite Soleil there is no where else to put your garbage except the sea which close by. This house is a real nightmare and besides all of this we don’t have electric power.

Dreams
“I believe in myself. I am not a perfect example. For, everybody has some good and bad habits. I know that I am special. I always tell the truth. I don’t brag about myself. Everyone is precious to me. I am respectful. I get angry easily. I am agreeable. I love to watch T.V., and to look at paintings because I love painting. I’d like to stop getting angry easily and loving boys like my boyfriend. I think if I can change these things, I will become a better person. I would like my new friend in the U.S to know that I am not a very bad person and I want to be better. I would like to become a doctor and someone who is ready to help other people who are in poverty, which comes from the bottom of my heart. What I care about the most is to go to school. Because I love school. For, without education you can’t become someone important in a society. I think I can achieve my dreams with your help, support, money and advice. I believe that these things will be enough for me to achieve my dreams.”

Gerda Family: I am 14 years old. I was born in Miragoana, Haiti. I have been living in Citron [a slum in Port-au-Prince, Haiti] for two years. My mother

Slum: Citron, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti


Gerda's story
WORK The first thing I want to say is that I do not have a good life where I live. Because I work very hard. I wash dishes, clean the house, sweep the floor, and carry water. I have no friend to play with on my block. The neighborhood children say that I am not the kind of child to play with. They say I look like an animal, because of my skin. As you can see, I have some marks like burns on my body. They are afraid of me. Every day I wake up on time

Dreams
I am very polite like you see. I love to share but I do not have things to share. I describe my self as someone timid. I am not selfish. I am not a bragger and I never stole anything in my life. The neighborhood children describe me like a bet. They do not want to be my friends. They depress me. About my talents, I can say I do not really have talents. As I told you, my talents are washing clothes, clean house, the floor, and sprinkle the flowers. I do not really know what I admire the most. Because the children say I am very ugly. That





I do not wish to treat friendships daintily, but with the roughest courage. When they are real, they are not glass threads or frostwork, but the solidest thing we know. For now, after so many ages of experience, what do we know of nature, or of ourselves? Not one step has man taken toward the solution of the problem of his destiny….But the sweet sincerity of joy and peace, which I draw from this alliance with my brother’s soul, is the nut itself whereof all nature and all thought is but the husk and shell. Ralph Waldo Emerson, Friendship
