OUR PLEDGE TO YOU:
If we use YOUR money to send a young Haitian to school, we promise to...
We also provide services to the community in which we work.
Date: November 1, 2017
Topic: Development of the Entrepreneurial Spirit
Keynote Speaker: Rock André, president of CEDEL HAITI
Other Speakers: Six young entreprenuers with inspiring stories to tell
At 5 PM, while the ceiling fans were still spreading heat and humidity around the room, the young Haitian entrepreneurs Mr. André brought with him were still spreading hope among the 450 conference attendees, whose attention was still strong as they listened to fascinating stories of tremendous difficulties faced and overcome, brain numbing problems that sometimes meant starting from scratch again and again, until at last these creative entrepreneurs reached the high level of success and stability with which they are blessing Haiti today.
One is a dressmaker, one created his own brand of pizza, one designs unique sandals, one makes cleaning supplies from raw materials in Haiti, one is a media consultant, and one has improved on the type of fried bananas previously sold in Haiti.
Over and over again these energetic young Haitians drove home the lesson that persistence is the key. “People will discourage you” they said, “but get away from fear and pray.” “Money is the last thing you need,” they told the audience, “a creative idea and a sound business plan are far more important.”
"Now I know I will never be discouraged about starting my business."...a Haiti Share team member

Title: "Children are special in the eyes of God,"
curriculum prepared by Pastor Ulysses Lemite of Carrefour, Haiti
Haiti Share's tenth anniversary celebration was held on June 29, 2017 in Carrefour, Haiti. In the morning, 150 people including team members, children in Junior Haiti Share, their parents, volunteers and friends from the neighborhood celebrated at the training center with praises, songs, testimonies and prayers, followed by lunch. From 2-6, there was a special service in a nearby school auditorium attended by 300 community members. Part of the agenda was to explain our programs to those who did not know Haiti Share well and let them know how they can connect with Haiti Share.

Ten years of training, spiritual transformation, love, joy, learning, instruction, leadership, experiences that forge our character.
Ten years that have shown us that Haiti can change,
that hope, patience, and love for each other
bring great blessing and peace.
Thank you God, and thank you to all those who helped us build and who believed in us!

Coverng Roofs in Jeremie, Haiti
May 8 - May 15, 2017
A team of 9 Haitians from Haiti Share went to a poor community on the outskirts of Jeremie, Haiti to put roofs on several homes that had been devastated by Hurricane Matthew and had still not been repaired. Jeremie is about 170 miles from our training center near Port-au-Prince. They bought the materials from local businesses in Jeremie in order to encourage the economy there.
"We have so many stories and at times we were on the verge of heartbreak, to see how the people suffer in soul and in body. But we did the best we could to help them. We want to thank the donors and churches who supported the trip. God will bless you, as do the people that have a roof now."...from the director of Haitian operations
