Pwoje Espwa Sud
Overture supports the programs & activities at ESPWA in Les Cayes, Haiti
Espwa's mission is to alleviate the devastating effects of poverty on vulnerable children in Southern Haiti.
ESPWA was founded in 1998 as a traditional orphanage. Over the course of 22 years of serving vulnerable Haitian children we have learned much about best practices in child development and the difficulties faced by families in extreme poverty.
As a result, we evolved from an orphanage to a child development center– to make every attempt to keep children in the most natural and supportive environment possible – the family.

WE SEE THE FACE OF CHRIST IN EVERY CHILD WE SERVE
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
–1 Corinthians 13: 4-7, 13
This quote from Scripture defines the core values of our mission in Haiti…Faith, Hope and Love.
The campus of Pwoje Espwa Sud is on 125 acres of land about 20 minutes from the city of Les Cayes and is fondly known as ESPWA...in Haitian Creole ESPWA means HOPE.
