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 in the Village of Lafito 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. From time to time, we are able to provide business start-up funds to assist individuals in meeting their basic needs.
As part of our goal of strengthening communities, we also encourage strong family bonds, and are able to assist couples who wish to make that marriage commitment.
As we value the opportunity for quality education, we seek to promote education for children, youth, and young adults.
We provide school sponsorships for thirty-five children and eight young leaders in the Village of Lafito to attend schools in their community - providing these children, youth and young adults with a hope for their future. We provide uniforms, school supplies, and tutors, and pay tuition and school fees throughout the year.
We have also been blessed to be able to help build and equip the school in the Village of Thomazeau, where we continue to provide regular teacher training opportunities, to enhance the quality of education in their school.
Future plans involve expanding our teacher training opportunities to other areas and sponsorships for post-secondary education.
