In agreement with, and in support of United Nations Resolution A/74/395 New Reality International has recognized the important need to shift from institutional care of orphaned children to alternative community and family care in order to ensure the optimal health and safety of each child. In light of the global awarenss movement emphasizing that children flourish best in a safe non institutionalized enviornment, NRI is excited to annoubce that we have worked closely with Haitian Child Protective Services (IBESR), our local organizational partners and child protection specialists both in the US and in Haiti to place children in safe alternative care situtions.
We are pleased to embark on an important trasition in 2020/2021 as the village in Haiti formerly occcupied by children, will be transitioned fully into a desperately needed sustainable women's home for Haiti's most vulnerable young women who have "aged out" of the vast orphanage system.
Our ultimate goal is that one day there will be minimal, to no need, for foreign aid, as the Village becomes fully self-sustainable, and locally run. Once the Village is fully developed, it will be self-sustaining through the implementation of solar power, serviceable solar operated wells for water, sufficient agriculture for food, an array of income generating micro-financed and small business projects, as well as the external use from the community of resources and assets. The focused goal is to have the local Haitians run and maintain the Village with minimal outside support. This will be achieved through empowering the local community, assisting in developing the skills of the local leaders, and promoting independence from outside aid.
