Our main project / apart from the ongoing ACTS house / orphanage and school, will be to build each of these elements but on a much larger scale. Building a long term community and allowing the people of Haiti to become self sufficient.
The project for 2013 and moving forward:
7 hectares has been purchased from government and is now owned by ACTS
45 minutes north of PAP
Working with local community of Lafitteau and Cabaret
Currently has 60 squatting families in temporary tented accommodation
Foundations laid and render complete
Plan is to build a complete self-sustainable community – including schools, orphanage, dormitories, medical facilities, playing areas, drinking well and agricultural opportunities
It will have a community development focus, where children will be well educated, fed, loved and develop the life skills they need to break the cycle of poverty.
