Community Development

Ti-commerce (small business) grants help individuals to help themselves!

We believe that the key to strengthening a community lies in empowering and uniting the individuals within the community to work together for positive change.   

We currently support community volunteers in providing children, youth and adult programs.  Our weekly kids' club program teaches children about the love of Jesus and servanthood in their community. Other volunteers work with youth and adults in the community teaching life skills, adult literacy, and English classes.

More than 2/3 of the work force in Haiti does not have formal jobs. We seek to provide opportunities for job creation which is the key to stimulating the economy, keeping families together, and strengthening communities. 

Our goal is to offer post-secondary opportunities for training and development to young men and women who stand out academically and as community leaders.  

From time to time, we are able to provide business start-up funds to assist individuals in meeting their basic needs.

Our vision is for a community centre in the heart of the Village of Lafito, meeting physical, emotional and spiritual needs within the community.  In the future, we see the community centre hosting a weekly medical clinic, family and pastoral counselling, pastoral training seminars and conferences, and social events, aimed at uniting the churches and community within the Village of Lafito.

We also envision building a training centre, and entering into community partnerships, to train skilled tradesmen, who can help to develop the community and provide for their families.
