About New Life for Haiti

It is the MISSION of New Life for Haiti to give children a chance at a future, to meet the urgent needs of families, to foster new economic opportunities, and to influence cultural thinking toward a sustainable change within the Grande Anse River Valley on the southern peninsula of Haiti.

In 2006, after a decade of making various trips to Haiti, Fran Leeman, a pastor from the Chicago area, and a few friends decided it was time to pick one place and try to make a long-term difference. With the help and leadership of missionaries Steve and Joline Moore, we began to explore a remote and very poor river valley at the end of Haiti's southern peninsula. We decided to headquarter our efforts in the village of Marfranc, right along the Grande Anse River. The first couple years were spent building relationships with people in the river villages and building a house for our staff and teams.

Since then we've built 6 schools, helped farmers learn sustainable techniques for goat breeding and planting, and rebuilt many homes after the 2010 earthquake and the 2016 hurricane. We have been providing training to teachers and pastors, and hope to begin planting new churches soon. We have built a strong child sponsorship program through which children receive an education, food, vitamins, clothing, books and school supplies. We have built a model school which uses alternative, interactive teaching techniques in order to give the children of the Grande Anse River Valley a chance at a brighter future. And we have begun building the Village of Hope orphanage, which welcomed the first 12 girls in September of 2018, and will welcome the first 12 boys in 2019.

In the area where we work the average family lives on less than $1 a day, and only 20% of the children can afford to attend school, so we continue to build schools and try to help young people grow up with greater economic opportunity.

We welcome your partnership with us-- together we can do so much for these forgotten children!

New Life for Haiti is an approved 501(c)3 charity and has received the 2018 Silver Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, the world's largest source of information on nonprofit organizations.
