Welcome to our blog. Here you will find updates on our current projects and events, letters from our board, staff and volunteers, as well as updates on the children. Thanks for visiting and please check back soon.
We are now planning a playground for the orphanage and the next couple of trips will include the development and construction of this project. We are also planning some service trips, where we will possibly build homes for some single mothers and some elderly and disabled neighbors who are currently living in tents and shacks. We hope to include our friends and local Haitian youth on these work projects.
When the time is right I would like to purchase a piece of land and build a new school, separated from the orphanage. This would free up space at the orphanage for us to take in more children. Our goal is to add at least one classroom each year.
In the new year we are also going to start making contacts in order to find educational sponsorships in the United States for our children. Our goal is to find sponsor families and schools by the time the children reach junior high age so they can study here and return to Haiti with an education and the ability to make a difference in their own country. We also hope to share Haiti with many more people and to be the conduit that provides access to those wishing to give back.
