The safety of the children, staff, and property is a top priority at Pwoje Espwa Sud. Our security program consists of 24-hour surveillance through guards posted at specific points around the property. Some of these points include the main entrance to the property, the entrances to the boys and girls villages, the guest house, the administration and medical buildings, and the kitchen. Along with these posts are constant traveling guards patrolling the property.

To ensure the safety of the children and staff, all visitors must provide proper identification and appointment time. Our security guards take professional development training in order to maintain the integrity of their job as well as the high level of standard set for the security of Pwoje Espwa Sud.

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!
