Working together we can create lasting change in Haiti …but we need YOU!

The Problem:

Alone, no one person could free children trapped in servitude, prevent domestic violence, or help the poorest families break the generational cycle of extreme poverty. These problems are far too complex and deeply rooted.

The Solution: 

Beyond Borders is bringing seemingly powerless people together to discover the strength that comes from their collective love, compassion, and determination to root out injustice in their communities.

 Your gift to the Love Breaks the Chains campaign will expand this work to reach more women, children, and families

Using tested and proven methods, what seemed completely impossible becomes reality:

Children are being freed and the systems that enslaved them are being dismantled.

The very poorest families are earning a dignified living and permanently breaking the generational cycle of extreme poverty.

The risk of intimate partner violence is reduced by more than half.
