Respire Haiti wants to end the practice of restaveks by incrementally changing the cultural attitudes about child slavery through holistic education, medical care and community programs.
When the financial burdens to educate and care for children are decreased, families have less reason to need to offer their children as restaveks. When communities are educated about children’s rights and their value, their views on child slavery slowly change.
