I'm Nittai Malchin, a senior at Palo Alto High School in CA and the founder of One Love Advocates. Our mission is to do whatever possible to improve access to education in communities that are struggling with destructive or endemic problems. My immediate focus is helping kids in Haiti gain access to educational opportunities. I recently traveled to Haiti, and I will be documenting my trip on this site. There are 4 sections (see navigation above) to my mini site: (1) my blog where i document my activities, impressions and thoughts from Haiti (2) About One Love where you can read more about the initiative (3) Support One Love where you can learn how to get involved, donate or help (4) contact info. And on the right sidebar you will find more info such as links to other sites, feeds, photos, videos, and ways to contact me or share One Love with others. Also, check out the cool toolbar on the bottom of your screen to see our videos, photos, and Facebook page, for translations, and more. Thank you for visiting and feel free to share your thoughts.

Haitian Schools and Children

Education is, in my opinion, the most important thing to focus on in these rebuilding efforts. Haiti's youth has remained optimistic and eager to learn. These kids are the future of Haiti, and they will be forced to live in the aftermath of the disastrous earthquake. For this reason, it's important that we focus on them and give them the tools that they need to, eventually, live a happy life and help rebuild their country.

This article and the video illustrate the needs of the Haitian children. This is exactly the kind of stuff that I hope to be helping out with on my trip.

Let me know how you feel...
