Embedded video from <a href=”http://www.cnn.com/video” mce_href=”http://www.cnn.com/video”>CNN Video</a> CNN has this report from Haiti on child laborers or “resteveks” (Creole for “stay withs”). Cross International is involved with schools for Haiti ‘revstevek’ children.  $4400 keeps one school in operation for 10 months in Haiti.
