Hunger is prevalent problem for children in Haiti, and malnutrition hinders a child’s ability to focus and study. Children who experience hunger early on are more likely to perform poorly academically. Diakonos’ agriculture program will help feed the children of Kominote Ti Fanmi Nou (Our Small Community of Family) and other community children by planting and farming in Fond Des Negres. We are raising money for gardening supplies, 500 chickens and 5 goats to start. Won’t you help us feed a community of vulnerable and hungry children? See our PROJECTS page for more information.
We help reduce and end the cycle of illiteracy, misery, and poverty for the needy children of Haïti by raising funds to empower them to stay in school and get the quality education they deserve. With your support, we are able to help families pay for their children’s school supplies, uniforms, textbooks, and tuition. Without education, these children would be doomed to become beggars and prostitutes on the street or given up as restaveks (child slaves). Join us in raising funds for supplies, and come with us on our distribution mission trip in September. See our PROJECTS page for more information.
It’s our favorite time of year again! Art Day Celebration (ADC) is an annual event that Diakonos uses to partner with other organizations, incorporating creative arts to bring healing and to restore hope to vulnerable children by nurturing their creativity – using visual arts, theater, movement and music, and showcasing their artistry. We are in need of money for art supplies and are seeking volunteers on our July 2017 mission trip. This year, it will be held in the beautiful countryside of Fond Des Negres. Don’t miss this year’s event! Visit the ADC website for more details.
We have the building plans, now we urgently need to raise $300,000.00 (three hundred thousand dollars) to rebuild Diakonos International’s children’s home – Kominote Ti Fanmi Nou. Seven years after the earthquake, our current home is patchworked together and we are in urgent need of rebuilding a safer building. We are working tirelessly to see that our children have the shelter they deserve. We currently have 20 children, but would ultimately like to house 50 children – but we simply cannot do so in an unsafe environment. See our PROJECTS page for more information.
