We will make a difference together...one child at a time!

In alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, our programs are designed to fulfill many of the goals laid out by the United Nations. They have developed an agenda and created a plan of action to change the world, and meet goals, by 2030. This plan includes 17 sustainable development goals and Pennies for Haiti has adopted many of these goals in order to change lives for women, children, and families in Haiti.  Children that live in extreme poverty, have little to no access to medical care, and face undernourishment are unable to meet their developmental milestones. This inability to develop properly at such a young age can cause a multitude of physical, emotional and medical issues throughout life.  (www.sustainabledevelopment.un.org)

House of Hope
Fulfills Goal 1 "No Poverty", Goal 2 "Zero Hunger", Goal 3 "Good Health and Well Being" and Goal 4 "Quality Education"

House of Hope mission is to love and care for children and help them achieve impossible dreams. Our program main goal is ensuring that vulnerable girls have access to education by providing them free tuition and providing the necessary scholastic materials. This program is available to two groups of girls we aim to assist; abandoned girls and those living at home with their parents. The abandoned children live in our house of hope year-round where they get the best of care; we presently have 12 girls living in our home. We are assisting three families for a total of six girls in Caradeux with full tuition. The girls in our program range from 1 15 years of age. Every child deserves access to education and this life-changing program provides opportunities for education that the girls would not otherwise receive.

Our needs...

* Tuition
* Caregiver stipends

The new global poverty line is set at $1.90  a day we are asking you to help us live above that limit.  Your contribution will help us provide three meals a day, pay the children's tuition and keep a roof over their heads.

Our Story

In August 2017, we opened our House for Girls for our girls and, at the time, it looked like an orphanage. Something that we've come to understand elicits a negative connotation, one of abandonment and uncertainty. Through our House of Hope, we have provided the young ladies with love, support, stability, structure, education, and daily needs. We have learned a lot since August 2017.

That's where we were, functioning as an "orphanage". That's not where we are today. Today, we've learned a lot about providing the basic fundamentals for the young girls and changing what their past once looked like - into a future of possibilities. We have also learned that education is the key, and educational support is the main aspect that makes quite a difference. The girls are enrolled in a Catholic school. They are flourishing and a lot of that has to do with our change in mindset and the providing of necessary educational support. We are not running an "orphanage", we are running a boarding school for vulnerable girls and reducing the number of girls growing up as children slaves.

Recently, Clary 3 joined us in our home. She was previously cared for by her grandmother who passed away. Her disability made it difficult for her Mom to care for her which made her turn to us for help. Clary is an extremely intelligent and lovable child. She has a smile that brightens up any sad day.  Continue reading Clary's story on our page.

Where we want to go! We are dedicated to helping those less fortunate and especially those with a disability to ensure they receive first the necessary care but also the education they deserve despite their disability or circumstances. While registering Clary in school we were informed she would not be accepted due to her disability. The answer was clear to us. We had to start a kindergarten for children with disabilities. We want to make sure Clary knows that she is a normal child despite her disability. Following the many rejections Clary and our children aged 3 - 5 will be our first students. We have to allow children with disabilities to receive the basic education they need to succeed. We will open our kindergarten to all children with disabilities. When all other doors closed we will keep our door open to especially disabled children.
