Today is the 10 year anniversary of Foundation Haiti Project. Ten years ago God broke the heart of one man for the children suffering in his own country. God took that broken heart and use it as a catalyst for what is now today’s ministry. There have been many highlights over the past ten years. We thought we might share just a few…
2009: President Kensly was walking in Jean Rabel. He saw children begging in the street. He committed in that moment to do something to help. Soon he would help to open an orphanage for children living there.
2011: President Kensly and Cowboy traveled several times to the northern part of the island to install water systems for villages. Thousands of people received clean water as a result.
2014: The children from the orphanage in Jean Rabel were moved closer to the capital. Haiti Project, which was FHP at the time, partnered with an existing orphanage to give the children full time care, residence, and school.
2018: HaitiProjectNw became Foundation Haiti Project and efforts began to make Foundation Haiti Project legal in both Haiti and the US. Both of these things were accomplished by the Spring of 2019. During 2018, a partnership was formed with the community of Morne a Cabrit, and a vision was cast to build Cowboy’s Castle.
2019: This past summer, FHP held the groundbreaking for Cowboy’s Castle. The land has started to be cleared, and fundraising is underway for the first phase of building.
We are thankful that God is allowing us to share in the work He is already doing in country of Haiti. We count it a joy and a privilege to serve. We are grateful to all of those who have partnered with us throughout the past 10 years and those who continue to do so. We are excited for what lies ahead. We know that the best days are yet to come!
“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.”
Until next time, Bondye beni-w!
