The Boys Are Home



After much anticipation, planning and building, the boys eagerly moved into their new living quarters in the Dome Village in January. The boys and staff are overjoyed to be in their new homes. The domes provide safe and secure housing for these boys, ages 2 – 12. 

It has been a little over a year since the construction began after Hurricane Matthew had destroyed much of the boys living spaces and supplies in October 2016. Now, these young children can rest their heads on pillows at night as they sleep and wake up every morning not worrying about the stability of their home. 

Thank you to those would made their new homes a reality! 

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!
