Haiti Now

Impact Report on Haiti Now’s Accelerated Education Program

Program activities
Haiti Now runs a residential school for restavek girls facing multiple challenges, providing: accelerated education (6 years condensed into 3); textbooks; school supplies; healthcare; and mentorship, training and capital to run their own businesses.



$70 enrolls a girl living in domestic servitude into primary school for a year.


Haiti Now collected data on outcomes of participants after the program. To estimate the change that was attributable to the program, Haiti Now made an educated guess as to how participants would have fared without the program.

Data source
Haiti Now collected data on daily attendance at school and students' performance from report cards.

Attribution method
Based on data produced by Fafo Research Foundation and others, an estimated 93% of restavek girls do not receive a primary education. Haiti Now assumes the same percentage of girls in its program would otherwise not have enrolled in primary school.

This report was created by Haiti Now with self-reported data using ImpactMatters' impact reporting platform. This report covers August 2015 to July 2016.
