She is beautiful.
She is a young Haitian girl living in the Dominican Republic.
The public schools in the Domincan are supposed to allow her to attend. Instead they exclude her and many other Haitian children because they are often undocumented and sometimes orphans and/or homeless. As a result, this young girl and 26 other Haitian children ranging in ages from pre-schoolers through junior high schoolers are receiving their educations in a one-room shanty from a pair of Haitian pastors.
I was invited to visit the school and meet the children during my recent trip to the Dominican. It bothered me a great deal as this school is just 5 minutes away from well-appointed public and private schools in the heart of one of the Dominican’s largest cities.
