Ending poverty in Haiti is multifaceted, and we take our role of stewardship seriously. That’s why more than 90% of our expenses are used for programs that directly affect the people living in Haiti – especially the small and mountainous community of Jeannette. 100% of our funding comes from private sources, including individuals, churches, corporations and grants. Our collective goal is to promote self-sufficiency and independence.

We are Christians:  committed to the words of Christ found in John 15:5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.”

 We are partners: committed to working in partnership with St. Marc’s Church in Haiti to reach out and help the community in Jeannette. Our common goal is Haitian self-reliance.

We value education:  committed to helping Haitian teachers provide the best possible education at St. Marc’s School in Jeannette.

We value people:  committed to finding a sponsor for every student in Jeannette. Each student has one sponsor, and we encourage sponsors to develop a meaningful relationship.

 We are responsive to the needs of the community:  committed to working    with the people of Jeannette to have access to drinkable water, basic healthcare, sustainable agriculture.  eye exam

 We use our time, talents:  committed to providing basic health care at St. Marc’s Clinic. The Haitian nurses and health care workers provide medicine, care and education to the community daily. Visiting American humanitarians provide additional services including medical, construction, teacher education, and community building.

 We are stewards of our resources:  committed to being financially accountable. We take our role of stewardship seriously and promise to keep administrative costs as low as possible.   We have audits of our finances done annually.
