Education is a right. Or at least I believe it should be. When you think about the impact that it has on a child and the opportunities that it creates, why is it not accessible to everyone? What would our communities look like if everyone had access to education? Less crime maybe? A safer, and better environment for families for sure.
But here’s another wrinkle. Education does not start at school. It starts at home. So when you are born into an uneducated household, your chances at early development as a child are really slim. This cycle makes it very difficult for underprivileged communities to thrive and get out of poverty.
In this episode, I have the pleasure and privilege to have Naïka Charles D’Haiti on the podcast. She is the founder of Project St. Anne, a non-profit organization based out of Camp-Perrin, Haiti. She has dedicated the past 12 years of her life to helping this charming community full of potential. I visited Camp-Perrin myself back in 2014 and that experience changed my life. Just like she is changing lives herself, giving the children in that area the hope that we should all have as human beings. The hope of a better future.
