Blossom Youth goes to Haiti
Organized by: mar now
This year we are focusing on an orphanage in Croix des Bouquets, Haiti. The children are in need of a home, medicine and more. Our goal is to build a home for 25+ children, the only school in the village, and leave them with tools to become sustainable.
The building that they have been living in the past few years is falling apart and the landlord is demanding untenable rent.
Sustainable Orphanages for Haitian Youth has been struggling since their inception. Luckily they have an amazing team trying to keep their heads above water, but it is a difficult task.
A home is within their reach. Land was purchased with the help of donations just three (3) blocks from the crumbling building they call home. A well has been dug and a fence has been constructed to protect the land. They are so close to being able to build this new facility. Sadly the only thing keeping these children and staff from a safe environment is funding.
Croix des Bouquets holds the village of Mayer where this construction has been put on hold. Not only will this half acre of land, house the 25+ children in earthquake safe buildings. It will also be the only school in the village. There is no education system set up for this entire province.
We hope to raise $70,000 this year which will not only create a home, but also a school for over 100 local children. It will also provide work for teachers and staff living on the premises, and hopefully create a sustainable life, including gardens, chickens, and cows.
