The Andora Project (TAP) is supporting the Haitian government in strengthening their child protection system. We are supporting the creation of Policies and programs that will focus on preserving the family to prevent abandonment of children.
We are working with the Social work department of the State University (Faculté des sciences humaines de l’Université d’Etat d’Haiti) to develop a social workforce of Haitians who will be able to respond to the country’s major social problem, and service children and their families.
The Andora Project believes that in order for Haitians to turn from aid recipients to true development, we must create a workforce to respond to social issues in Haiti. Through the Family Preservation initiative, TAP brings technical assistance to the State University and other Haitian institutions through collaborations with US partners and Diaspora organizations interested in supporting and reforming child welfare in Haiti.
Our Goal, is to ensure that there are policies and programs aimed at keeping families together. To eradicate the issue of economic orphans and Restaveks and ensure that children and families have access to a minimum of social protection.
