Build A School Today
Transform a Community Forever
The school building has been funded! And while we celebrate this amazing blessing, we know
that there is still much work to be done to leave a legacy for these 30 orphans & 120 vulnerable
"In Haiti, school represents the only institution where education takes place. In other words, we [parents] are too busy working and trying to make a living. A good school is necessary to educate the children, instill moral values, and make sure they have a bright future.” - Pastor Gaetan
school building has been funded! While we are so grateful to you for
helping us meet our goal, there are a few additional things we can help
with to keep our 30 orphans and 150 vulnerable children healthy and
is not the most exciting thing to raise money towards, but especially
with Haiti's recent history with cholera, clean and sanitary bathroom
facilities truly can be the difference between life and death. Our
commitment to educating our children also includes teaching a clean,
healthy lifestyle and to that end, we are raising an additional $1,500
to ensure that our facilities are clean and that everything is being
treated properly and safely.

No, really. The catch is that you have to do it
through the Pure Charity website's online partners (like GAP, Target, J.
Crew & Apple). They will donate a percentage to your Online Giving
Fund which then you pass on to this project.
We will continue to give the funds to
Pastor Gaetan and Yaveh Shamma, so visit us again to see

Gaetan took in 14 orphans before the earthquake in Haiti. He and his
wife knew it was the right thing to do. After 2010’s devastating
earthquake took the lives of so many, including his brother and many
members of his church, Pastor Gaetan found himself with 16 more orphans
in his care. Since then, we’ve been able to help him build safe
buildings to house the children and his family, and he has built a tent
school that serves his 30 orphans as well as 120 vulnerable children
from the surrounding community. We are going to build a permanent
structure in place of the tents to offer more safety, security, and
protection from the brutal Haitian sun. Much of our
materials will be made in Haiti by Haitians, and the structure will be
constructed by Haitians as well. This way, we can also help grow the
Haitian economy at large, creating jobs and helping the workers to
provide for their families.
