Back to School at PES!

Back to school at Pwoje Espwa Sud means an education for 1,200 children living in extreme poverty.

 

We believe every child has the right to an education and the ability to learn without limitations. Including our friend Madeline. 

This is Madeline.

She is 11 years old and entering the 4th grade at Pwoje Espwa this year. One day, she dreams of becoming an intelligent and strong policewoman.

…But Madeline needs your help to realize her dream.

 

We need YOUR help to supply Madeline and other children with school supplies, backpacks, and uniforms they need to receive a quality education in Haiti.

Provide these essential materials for a child

by making donation today.

DONATE!

 

An education is one of the most prized possessions for a child in Haiti.

In a country where the average Haitian, age 25 or older, has completed only 5 years of schooling, simple things keep kids at home or prevent schools from providing the resources needed to learn.

 

Inability to afford the laundry list of costs to attend public school,

the need for another set of working hands to support the family,

schools being overcapacity, underfunded and lacking basic materials to teach and learn…

…These are burdens a child should never have to worry about.

 

 

YOU can help us overcome these limitations by

supporting a sustainable learning environment. 

Support sustainable learning.

 

 

Supply a child like Madeline with school materials this year!

I fell in love with Espwa during my first visit last year. Hard to put into words, but there was a real "heart" connection with the kids and staff. It is a special place. My visit was focused primarily on the girls and the teachers. Relationships were initiated during that first visit that I treasure very much!

There is hardly a more heartbreaking sight than seeing an orphan in Haiti--many of them who have families who simply cannot feed and clothe them. Of course there is the emotional response to their plight, but there is a more pragmatic hope--that given a chance in a loving, caring environment, these children can grow up to be leaders, people who can move their communities and the country itself in a positive, healthy direction.

This place is amazing! The kids and their caregivers will restore your faith in the human spirit. The magic of Espwa is that there is a childhood provided for the kids there that would not exist otherwise.Haiti has a very very long way to go, but this is a hopeful place with clean, well fed, happy children, teachers, house moms, and support staff. Fr Marc and all of the others should be very proud of their accomplishments. Help them in any way that you can!
