THE STORY:

Since the 2010 Haitian earthquake, the Foyer Espoir les Enfants Orphanage has become home for 45 kids in Port-au-Prince. With the mission to make kids better citizens for tomorrow through nurture and love, founder Marie Jo Poux continues to take in orphans as well as children whose parents can no longer care for them. Her mission expanded with the creation of the Community School, which provides education and life skills children will take into their adult lives. The 180 children who attend would otherwise not have had an opportunity for schooling.


A close friend, Justin Yarborough, has worked with Marie Jo over the past couple of years to improve conditions at the orphanage and school. He was able to have her story chronicled in a wonderful documentary, ‘Grace and Mercy.' (I’d be happy to send a copy upon request). This short clip, released subsequent to the film, provides some sense of Marie Jose (I’ve met her twice) and the children: http://wehearyourvoice.com/home/?page_id=402


The Orphanage and School provide all the necessities for the children. For instance, clothing/uniforms are given to the students.
• The Orphanage budget is $72,500; roughly half for food & water, a third for rent & utilities, and the remainder for staff and medical
• The Community School budget is $46,400; a third for teachers and the rest for books, supplies, uniforms, rent & utilities.
My goal is to raise $30,000 to cover 3 months of expenses for the Orphanage and Community School. In advance, thank you!
