Courage and Change
Our mission is to instil Godly courage by nurturing the mind, body, and spirit. Courage that ignites the desire to think broader and step out in ways never imagined. Change that extends across oceans and lasts a lifetime.
Vodou is so deeply rooted in the Haitian culture that it not only affects those that practice it, but it is the Christians that live in daily fear. Unaware that God has provided strength and authority to overcome, they live in constant bondage that has lasted since 1803 when they first gained independence. Strengthening spiritually is the first step towards true freedom.
Emotional instability has a negative impact on how one lives out their life, adds confusion, and stirs up self-doubt. Necessary steps towards emotional empowerment such as small groups and exercises can counteract feelings of helplessness and despair.
An estimated 29% of children under five years of age in Haiti suffer from moderate to severe growth stunting and an additional 10% suffer from moderate to severe muscle wasting. Parentless children are at higher risk but with adequate nutrition and regular physical activity this can be counteracted.
Approximately 75% of Haiti's population lives on less than a dollar a day and has no access to clean drinking water or food with complete nutrition. With education and employment opportunities we can equip with the tools necessary for independence and provide additional resources for the community.
