You Can Help Keep a Child Free.
Last year 9-year-old Rosemaine Sejou added something miraculous to her daily routine.
With the help of some market women who sympathized with her, Alina was eventually able to escape and find her mother. The birth certificate of a deceased half-sister was offered to Alina, giving her for the first time a legal identity and name. Still, simply surviving was a feat of great strength for many years.
Today Alina is more than a survivor. She has become a leader in the movement to end the restavèk practice. She works with Beyond Borders, nurturing a growing network of other adult survivors of restavèk. By sharing her own story, she helps them overcome their own shame and begin, often for the first time, to tell their own painful stories. Together they find healing, joy, and strength for this struggle.
Survivors are especially adept at identifying children in restavèk in their own neighborhoods and taking a stand to defend them. They can also speak with great moral authority against this practice that enslaves a quarter million Haitian children today.
Give With Confidence.

I’m fundraising for No Child a Slave because I believe every child deserves to grow up in freedom, not trapped in slavery. Every dollar you donate to my fundraiser will be matched by generous benefactors of Beyond Borders, so you can double the impact of your own generous donation: $80 becomes $160, $120 becomes $240, $300 becomes $600, etc.
I can’t imagine a more meaningful investment than helping secure the freedom of children trapped in slavery. Together with your generous support we can help free even more children from slavery. Thank you for your care and concern for the children of Haiti!
Here are my family & friends who’ve joined me in this effort:
Bob Smith $25
Sally Jones $150

We believe that all children should have the chance to become whoever they want, without an adult to mistreat them simply because their mother or father has died, or because their parents lack the means to take care of the child, forcing them to live with someone else. This is what we believe, and this is why we do this work.Guyto Derosiers, Coordinator, Beyond Borders Child Protection Team
