About the Book
Containing 160 pages, this book shows Haiti today through the eyes of its children. The stories are written by the children themselves. We have tried to capture the hopes, dreams and aspirations of the children- not only for themselves, but for their village, their community and the future of Haiti.
Further, I was never certain I could live up to the expectations of both the children who worked so hard at writing their articles and, as well, the expectations I set forth for myself in producing this book.
Each child's article was originally written by them to answer one, or all of the following questions: What I Wish for Haiti When I Grow Up; What I Want to Be When I Grow Up; The Person I Admire Most in the World and Why; My Biggest Hope in the World; and, Why I Want To Go To School. Their translated work appears in English, and on the following page, their original reply written in Haitian Creole.
While many of the pictures of the children who authored the articles appear in this work - rarely does their picture appear next to their personal stories, assuring their privacy and identity.
All net proceeds from any sales go directly to Project Rennwish, Inc. (a 501c3) and for each book sale, we are able to send another child to school in Haiti.
