Original Project Scope
Haiti ARISE has a vision “to raise up godly leaders in Haiti through education to strengthen their families, neighbours and country, bringing relief of poverty and stimulating the economy, and to preach the Gospel so that lives will be saved and hope for a strong future will be given to Haiti.” They have been carrying out this vision through a theological and trade school, where practical life skills are taught alongside Biblical leadership and theological training to young men and women who are hungry to learn. The January 2010 earthquake, however, destroyed 90% of Grand-Goâve, including Haiti ARISE’s technical school.

Engineering Ministries International sent a team to Haiti ARISE in June 2011 to master plan their Children’s Village and Ministry Centre on newly-purchased land. Now eMi is going back to do the re-master planning and design for the original technical school campus, which is currently being reconstructed following the earthquake.

There are a number of aspects to the long term vision:

  • To finish the reconstruction of the technical school and clinic buildings
  • To transfer the school and church to the newly-designed site
  • To remove the temporary school and church structures to make room for an administration building, technical school expansions, and housing for students and guests.
  • To expand the existing water, wastewater, and electrical systems to accommodate new facilities

Will you be part of the team to rebuild Haiti and to help teach Haitians the necessary skills to earn a living and improve their quality of life?
