I saw Dieu Sauver use some twine to tighten a package of 24 colored pens to the handle bars of his motorbike. I asked him what was the special occasion. He said he wanted to give the kids something nice to use, to give them a different experience at school. I was touched. Dieu Sauver is just a kid that attends church here. He doesn't have any kids that attend school here, he is just looking to bless the lives of those around him. An angel
Youth that find themselves with little to no education have limited skills that fit the marketplace, leaving them vulnerable to the sex trade. This initiative is a late intervention for these youth to gain skills in viable micro business ventures. You can provide a child with the training, kit, and supervision for them to be successful in the marketplace.

Sponsor the lunch program
The students that come to school get lunch daily, which is typically their only meal for the day. As the student body increases in size, the current budget will be inadequate. You can better the cooking conditions as well as feed these youth refugees their one meal a day.
Sponsor a teacher
The teacher at our school in Puerto Escondido is not currently earning a living wage. For him to eat, drink, place to stay, wash clothes, out here on the frontier, he needs to earn about $56/month. Currently for teaching 3 different classes at the same time, full time, with 3 different curriculums and test schedules he earns $37 a month. It's a sacrifice that we don't want to last forever. Until we can coordinate local family support of the instructor, we would love your help in providing this wage for Dieu Leur. In order for this school to continue to thrive, the teachers need to be earning a wage that can support their basic necessities. You can help insure better education by sponsoring this teacher and potential future teacher's salaries.
Hand washing Station
You successfully assisted the church/school in eliminating disease and illness by installing a new bathroom facility. You can now further help the community cut down on the spread of disease and lift the community culture by helping fund the installation of privacy doors and a hand washing station.

Paving the Way
The universal mode of transportation in Haiti is motorcycle. The roads are frequently either too muddy to navigate, or so rocky that they damage the motorcycles. As crops are transported over these roads, what little profit is made is easily lost in motorcycle repairs and damaged goods. This project partially pays for bags of cement so that they can pave an 18 inch wide road that will make easy passage for motorcycles. Neighbors come together and pave 10 to 20 feet at a time, smoothing out the roughest portions of the roads. Purchasing the bags of cement on their own just isn't financially possible yet just giving the bags away requires no sacrifice on their parts. Partially purchasing the cement creates ownership and pride in their work along with community building as they build roads together.

Gift a lamb
Much good comes from selfless acts of generosity or kindness. In an effort to jumpstart this process in communities where brotherhood and sisterhood has been absent for a long while, your donations have begun this process of giving between neighbors with Gift a Lamb. Each family that receives an ewe, is invited to donate the first offspring to their neighbor with the promise that they too will do the same. With this budding tradition, it is helping the communities grow and celebrate with abundance.
