Hope Grows’ mission is to feed, clothe, house, and educate the children and people of Grand Goave, Haiti.
We have opened 3 schools in the mountain regions, providing an education for 850+ students. Instead of sponsoring children directly we find it more efficient to pay the teachers and allow any children in their area to attend free.
Our feeding program continues to provide up to 1500 hot meals a week in the impoverished area of Petit Paradis. We are planning to expand the program to include another location at one of our schools in the mountains.
The building program is up and running. We have introduced a unique system that is bug proof, hurricane proof and earthquake resistant. The Haitian workers we have hired and trained have been building homes and warehouses and are now in the process of constructing our compound. This compound houses a lodge for visiting medial and work teams, a clinic with a full time nurse, and an active church for the community. Building has commenced on a school hopefully opening fall 2017, and future plans include a children’s home and home for the elderly.
Clothing distribution is carried out on a regular basis as we are able to get the containers into the country.
All of these projects continue with the faithful donations of our supporters and God’s loving hand of protection.
