There are things that we take for granted in the United States. Like children playing on a playground and public education. Unfortunately these aren’t the norm in Haiti. I lived and worked in Port au Prince for three years from 2012-15. During that time I witnessed the gross inequalities first hand. Children provided a lunch would save a portion of their meal for later in the day when they would be hungry again. Ke Nan Ke provides opportunities for education and group play in a safe environment, works to fight hunger and much more. Every interaction makes a difference in the life of a child.
