Pwoje Espwa Sud is located on over 100 acres of land. This land is not only used for housing, schooling, and other care facilities, but for cultivating and growing our agriculture program. Pwoje Espwa Sud employs some of the most knowledgeable people in the field who help keep the program up and running as well as provides training for the younger children who find a passion in the earth.

The agriculture program grows, but is not limited to, guava, papaya, peppers, plantains, watermelon, herbs, and mangoes. All of the fruits and vegetables grown are used to feed the children and help provide them with the proper nutrients they need to grow.

Chickens, pigs, horses, and other livestock are also cared for through the agriculture program. The eggs the chickens lay are used to during mealtimes for the children. The pigs are also used to feed the children. The animals are cared for in a loving and safe environment.

Some of the younger children are provided training in caring for the livestock as well as the gardens. They also are provided the freedom to plant their own gardens outside their homes in the village. Pwoje Espwa believes in empowering children to find their passion. These programs are made possible by the generosity of donors.

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!
