2006 – 2021
Healing Haiti’s Timeline
It all started with abundant love and faith in God’s vision for Haiti.
God planned for us to be part of a family. Our focus is on helping Haitians help themselves so they can keep their families together. With a 70 percent unemployment rate, many mothers and fathers find making a commitment to a family structure challenging. We want to help break the cycle of parents abandoning their children or giving them to orphanages or into child slavery. We believe that we can help do that by creating jobs.
“People in Haiti don’t want handouts. They want jobs. I’m proud to be a man who has money to take care of his family, to have money in my pocket to give to his wife to go the market. It’s important as a man to have dignity, to be able to hold your head up. My job has provided that to me.’’ -Solomon, of Titanyen, a husband, and father.
