PROJECTS

Natural Disaster Recovery

Haiti has been the epicenter of the most horrific natural disasters such as tropical storms, hurricanes, and earthquakes for many years. Available resources are scarce and still not enough to even prepare for the next natural event to hit the island as we are still recovering from the previous one. We look to recovery resources to help rebuild and aid those who are in dire need.

2015 Building Project - School Pre-k to 7th grade 

 

177 Students are currently enrolled with us and we need a new space to facilitate

our education and extra-curricula needs:

classrooms, library, cafeteria, infirmary, and office space for projected growth

to a maximum of 200 students.

 

We are soliciting funds and building materials for this project. Building

materials are constantly being shipped with other drive shipments.

 

No contribution is too small

We would like to complete this project by year end of 2015.

 

The children thank you for all that must be sacrificed in time, talent, and funds

to make this a reality. 

 

Don't wait, please send what you have during our 2015 Winter Collection Drive or donate today via or donate page.
