There's Always a Choice, Right?

Young women living in the displacement camps in Haiti are finding themselves with new and unexpected responsibilities. Whether having been a rape victim or having suffered the loss of a parental figure, these young women are now taking on the role of "Provider". Believing that they have no other option, these young women resort to prostituting themselves in order to provide for whatever family they have left.

In the United States and in other countries, prostitution and other similar activities are frowned upon, and the women who engage in these activities are told that they always have a choice. Could we really say the same to the young women in Haiti?

Please watch this interview with three young Haitian women who felt that they did not have a choice.

We are looking forward to the day when these young women not only have a choice, but have the opportunity to create whatever they would like for their future and see their dreams come alive.
