The Development Program focuses on the areas of physical construction and economic development projects. Since we started, we have drilled four wells in the community to improve access to clean water. Other projects for the future include agricultural development, an irrigation project, and other economic development efforts.
Pòtapòt, which means Door-to-Door in English, is our micro-finance program. It recognizes that many people remain poor because of lack of access to capital, especially because commercial banks are unlikely to lend to poor people without adequate collateral. Pòtapòt is a non-sectarian program geared toward the empowerment and development of the economy of Haiti.
The immediate project under way is a 5000 square foot Primary School building. Work is well under way even as the fundraising effort continues. Phase I of the building is nearing completion. The class photos show the students who are anticipating the new facility. This building will serve multiple purposes in the community and will be a focal point of delivery of services.
