Product Description

Take your evening outside with a stamped metal lantern! Each piece is cut from old oil drums, hand pounded to make the detail work, and assembled with great care. Simply add your own candle and light up the night!

Haiti has one of the highest unemployment rates in the Western Hemisphere. As families struggle to survive, the children are most at risk. In the worst situations, parents are faced with a horrible choice...reduce the family or starve. A child may be given away to a family friend or relative for "care", but the brutal fact is that they are in essence placed into servitude. These child slaves are called restaveks, and they have little to be hopeful about for the future. It's critical to keep these "at risk" Haitian families together and protect the future of the children. This group does exactly that. They offer continuing education and job skills training, emergency medical care & support, community development, small business mentorship, and school tuition assistance.
