About the charity:
The AMURTEL Haiti Children’s Home is home to several babies and children who either need a permanent home or full or part time support. Many of the children who have experienced neglect or abandonment are thriving due to a loving and supportive atmosphere. Whenever possible, ties to the families of participating children are maintained and supported.
AMURTEL Haiti also runs two schools in Haiti; one in Port Au Prince, the other in Anse a Pitre. Both schools use a curriculum and educational philosophy based on Neo-Humanism–a philosophy that propagates love for all creation. The philosophy seeks to acknowledge the spiritual, mental, and physical aspects of a child through the methods of creative arts, supportive sharing circles, and yoga asanas. This educational philosophy is employed as a way of fostering compassionate caretakers and leaders in our future society.
