They also support adult literacy. One of their major focus' is to cut the flow of Haitian children into domestic servitude... basically child slavery. Please support Beyond Borders, who has a long term relationship with Haiti and her people. They will be there long after the larger international aid organizations have moved on. For five consecutive years Beyond Borders has been awarded the highest rating from Charity Navigator™, America’s largest independent evaluator of charities.
