"Restevek": Jean-Robert Cadet

Event is on: Oct 16, 2009
Posted on: Oct 9, 2009 @ 11:29:47 am

Jean-Robert Cadet will speak about his experiences as a restevek and his ongoing work to end the restavek system and to bring hope and freedom to the children of Haiti. Restevek is a Creole term which literally means "stay with." An accurate term in that these children do stay with their hosts, working as servants in exchange for a roof over their heads, meager food, and supposedly, to attend school. Few are given the chance at an education. Jean-Robert Cadet lost his childhood, but unlike many others he was able to escape this degredation through education. Noon- 1:30 P.M. Friday October 16, 2009, UCF Library Room 223. Free and open to the public. Directions to campus and the Library are on the UCF Web site http://www.ucf.edu/locations/ Additional parking information can be found at http://parking.ucf.edu/ The Library is open to the public and the UCF community seven days a week, excepting major and university holidays. More information regarding hours and holiday closures can be found on the Library’s Web site, http://library.ucf.edu.
