We are building a Children’s Center in Haiti – Join us!

The three children in the picture to the right (Jacque, Chante, and Zac) lost their parents in the earthquake. They live together in a tent, begging for food and starving for love.

A local community leader, Bonite Affriany, serves food and educates these children and over 275 others everyday – some of them walking over an hour to reach her center for one square meal. She provides them nourishment, education, faith and love…but must send them back to their tents and to the streets every day.

We are changing this.

Bonite owns a large piece of property adjacent to her existing lunch/classroom facility where we have partnered with her to develop a community center for the children: a place for them to sleep, eat, attend classes, pray and be loved. Our hope is that the center will become a hub in the Jacmel community for giving children the opportunity for a brighter future, providing education, art, refuge, faith and love.

The development team, spearheaded by bay area husband/wife social entrepreneurial team Philip Schneider and Lisa Rueff, is comprised of a number of US and Haitian organizations and individuals that are dedicated to supporting less privileged children and communities in need. These include APTECH, a local Haitian construction school for teenagers and young adults, artist/humanitarian Misha Collin’s of non-profit Random Acts, architect Ed Weinstein of Weinstein AU, and many more. ¬†Feel free to donate or contact us for more information on how you or your organization can get involved.
