Hopes and ambitions in Haiti 

Daily school meals are helping hungry children in Haiti to make the most of their education and follow their dreams.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?  
We asked children who receive Mary’s Meals in Haiti about their hopes for the future. Here’s what they said: 

Estine, 12 
“I want to be a nurse when I’ve finished school. It seems like a good job. I knew someone who worked as a nurse. They are my role model.”

Accillaire, 12 
“I want to be an agricultural specialist when I grow up. I just really want to do that for a living.”

“I want to be a big chef in a restaurant when I am older. I like to cook different types of meals.”

Gerald, 13 
“I want to be an engineer. Then, I can make things, and also fix things.”

Cynthia, 11 
“I want to be a doctor. I want to help heal people who are sick, just like the doctor who looks after me does when I am sick.”

Pedro, 8 
“I want to be an accountant when I finish school. I like maths and I want to work with money.”

Monia, 13 
“I want to be a cabinetmaker when I’ve finished school. I will be able to make things to earn money.”

Pierre, 14  
“I want to be an engineer when I finish school. I would like to build strong houses.” 
Thank you for helping Haiti’s future generations to learn and thrive.
