Emory Presbyterian Church is excited to be in partnership with four other local Presbyterian churches, the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, and the Haitian organization Mouvman Peyizan Papay (MPP) to build a school for the children in the EcoVillages of the central plateau of Haiti.
Education offers hope for a different future for the children of the EcoVillages in Haiti. Today few Haitian children attend an accredited school and more than half of all Haitians are illiterate. The answer is education. That’s why building this school is so important.
Additionally, we are providing the Haitian villages with livestock such as goats that will help the families’ well-being and longevity. Periodically — including during the month of January 2017 — our Change the World jar money goes to this endeavor to provide livestock to the people of Haiti.
