Wells of Hope Clean Water Initiative

Hope - One Village at a Time

PROVIDING HOPE AND DIGNITY TO THE POOREST OF THE POOR IN HAITI

Homes For Destitute Families

We start with housing. The families we assist typically live in primitive shelters made from cast off materials. We provide a secure, dry, clean, cinder block home that they own to start a new beginning.

Safe Water and Sanitation

Water borne disease is a killer in poor communities. We ensure clean water and proper sanitation, through wells, water purification and sanitary facilities.

Community Development and Education

We help coordinate and train local village councils so residents can manage their own affairs. We also support educational development for children and adults.

Sustainable Food and Income

Establishing sustainable food sources; goats, chickens, gardens, cassava bakeries is an important step. In addition we help residents develop income producing enterprises to better provide for their families.

Medical Services

Basic healthcare services and preventative care saves lives. Working with Haitian doctors and medical staff, we work to fill the void of primary medical care for families in some of our villages. Medication, testing, prenatal care are a few of the services provided.

While helping to meet the basic needs of Haitians for housing and clean water, Hope for Haitians also creates sustainable solutions for continued self-sufficiency and provides education programs to prepare the next generation
