As stated on our mission statement, we want to give our kids the opportunity to “become well-rounded, self-sufficient adults”.
Unlike other children’s homes in Haiti, and other countries as well, is that we do not “kick our kids out the door” when they turn 18. We work hard to help them transition into adulthood.
This is where our PATH (Postsecondary And Trade Help) to Independence program comes in. 14 of our children are enrolled our PATH program in which they are studying in college or trade school in Haiti, Cuba, and the United States. One student, Jeanine, has graduated with a degree in business and is now a supervisor at our children’s home where she grew up! And few ambitious students are studying to become medical doctors in Cuba!
