Move to Matter! Projects
Many children in Haiti do not have a voice. They are abandoned, abused, exploited, and left in the streets. Little Footprints, Big Steps is committed to protecting these children's rights and helping them heal - by preventing child abandonment in Haiti, and by providing intensive care to victims. Having lived alongside 75 children who were separated from their families and trapped in an appalling, abusive orphanage, Morgan, one of the founders, began reuniting children with their families. Her group has personally reunited close to 300 children with their families, saving them from slavery and abandonment. Through her safe house children can have access to education, medical care and nutrition. This is made possible through a sponsorship program.
