Seeing Your Impact in Action:
Meet the Jn Claude Family!
Imagine living in a one-room hut with tin scraps for your walls and a shredded tarp for your roof. Providing even one meal a day for your family of nine is daunting enough - a nearly impossible task that requires all of your time and energy. Then imagine, with every storm, watching as the rain hopelessly drenches your children and your possessions. An impossible situation and an endless cycle.
This was the reality for the Jn Claude Family of nine before Overture and ESPWA entered the picture, providing services that ultimately resulted in the family's ability to focus on increasing their income and meeting their own needs without aid.
Overture empowered the surrounding community
by collaborating with local leadership and hiring local crews
to build the Jn Claude's new home.
ESPWA provided education and farming support
to supplement family nutrition, along with family counseling
and economic training, mentoring to build income potential.
Preserving families like the Jn Claude family would not be possible without the generous support of our partners - like you. As we look forward to a new chapter in our partnership with ESPWA and with all of you, we're realizing the sky's the limit!
That's why we're broadening ESPWA's child development offerings to include family services and community and economic development initiatives as well. Because in order for a child to really thrive, they need quality education and a loving family, paired with a sustainable community and an independent economy to become self-sufficient to meet their own needs.
Where there is an economy, children can envision a future - and when a child can see true promise, they become motivated and driven to reach their goals.
This is our dream for Southern Haiti!
We're ready to see strong communities,
empowered by strong families,
overcome poverty with their
own power, skills, and determination.
Together, we're in a position to create a more robust social-economic ecosystem for Southern Haiti's most vulnerable. Together, we're empowering the boots on the ground to ensure these children have every opportunity for a successful future.
Together, we're making a greater collective impact!
