Original Project Scope
In 2002, Haiti ARISE Ministries purchased a 2-acre parcel of land to begin its work in Grand-Goâve, Haiti.  A technical school and living facilities were constructed on that land, followed by a church that was planted with 45 new believers.  Today that church has over 400 members.

Over the years more land was purchased to expand the school and the work grew to include ESL training, monthly rice and clothing distributions, a half-acre community garden and Bible School classes.

The catastrophic earthquake of January 2010 destroyed 90% of Grand-Goâve, including the city hall, the police station and schools.  Haiti ARISE's technical school needed to be rebuilt, but its housing survived and became a major staging site for post-earthquake disaster response efforts.

The work of our eMi Canada team will be to master plan an undeveloped 7-acres parcel land across the street from the main campus and design the buildings for a children's village (orphanage), a school and a church/multi-function conference centre.

Haiti ARISE continues to lean on God as it strives "to build skills, ignite hope and effect change throughout the nation of Haiti."  Will you prayerfully consider joining the team to plan out the compound design? You will be helping Haiti ARISE show the community the love that Jesus has for all people by caring for the poorest of the poor.
