Education is a basic human right and a significant factor in the development of children, communities, and countries. So many kids with high potential become victims of their own environment. That's where Mind Defense as a non-profit organization steps up to help children move from poverty to success. Many children younger than 12 years old in both rural and urban areas in Haiti are being groomed into organized criminals or being forced into prostiution in order to support the rest of the family. Children deserve to be in school not on the streets. Young boys deserve to have a book in their hands not a gun. Mind Defense supports boys and girls starting from their first year of middle school to achieve their full potential by creating a strong learning environment.
