Who Deserves Human Rights?

With 80 percent of Haitians living in abject poverty, many children are forced to work against their will in homes, fields, gangs and as prostitutes. As many as 200,000 are the victims of human trafficking.

But there is a solution: microfinance. »

These children are driven into trafficking for economic reasons. Reducing poverty, therefore, would help stop this slave trade in children.

It's simple really: through microfinance, small loans enable hard-working women to open small businesses that let them feed and shelter their families. Just a few dollars a day in added income can mean children do not have to be forced into work. Instead, they can go to school and be healthy.

Former President Clinton is the UN Special Envoy to Haiti. At the top of his priorities is sustainable job creation. Tell him that there is no better way to protect Haiti's children and create sustainable jobs than microfinance. »

Thanks for taking action!
