BENEFITING: TRUSTEESHIP INSTITUTE INC
At long last, an up-date:
When we last met, we (Haiti Orphanbage Sponsorship Trust, "HOST") were helping The Foyer Evangelique Universel Orphanage (OFEU) in Croix des Bouquets, Haiti, to provide basic essentials and maintain fundamental water and sanitation facilities for its orphans. Since then:
We have established a collaborative partnership with the OFEU, under which we have pooled our resources including all your contributions. The good news is three-fold:
- children now receive three meals/day, and have access to clean potable water
- a new dormitory space has been constructed on the site of the orphanage, replacing the badly deteriorated, temporary structure constructed immediately after the 2010 earthquake. You can see pictures on this page, and appreciate how much more room and security is now available to these children.
The other good news:
- we are moving on to longer term concerns that will address: 1) children's skills development for productive integration into the labor market and "graduation" to independence; and 2) investing for sustainability, specifically to establish a source of local revenues to replace external (foreign) funding and, concurrently, to build on both the material and economic capacities of local -- Haitian -- resources.
We are small but committed group. We want our contributions to be not only altruistic, but effective. We hope you can help us help this Haitian community and its children improve their lives well into the future. Here's what your contribution will affect:
