As we enter a new fiscal year for Free the Kids and Pwoje Espwa Sud, Father Marc’s recent message to all of you discussed some ongoing changes.
I want to thank Father Marc for his faith and trust in the team now navigating Haiti’s most challenging problem—its vulnerable children. These children are the future of Haiti and deserve our best efforts. I am honored to pilot our efforts towards preparing these children for a life of independence with dignity.
This is an awesome responsibility. The lives of so many children at risk weigh heavy on the hearts of our Haitian and US staff as we have limited time to influence their futures. In a collaborative effort, we are focused on charting our course for the next 20 years.
This year, in Haiti’s continued unstable economy, we have met our budget (first year in many), built new residential homes, expanded the school, and created enhanced educational opportunities. We have collectively redefined our services and are putting a staff in place with the competence to help more children and families than ever in Haiti’s Southern region (read more about our programs).
Father Marc’s bold vision of serving Haitian children has blossomed into a mission full of Faith, Hope, and Love. Thank you for your Faith in us, inspiring us with Hope and pouring out your Love to these children.
God Bless you for your continued support and prayers!
