Free The Kids brings future hope to this impoverished nation. With the education that is being provided to over 800 children there is a future for them in Haiti. In addition providing food for the destitute and a home for so many children will help Haiti to develop a more sustainable economy

I had the honor of visiting Pwoje Espwa! With the basics of food, clothing, shelter, education, and medical
provided to the children, they are becoming remarkable, caring young people who will give back to their
own country and make it a better place to live. They are taught compassion, kindness and and leadership skills while they look out for one another. They work hard, learn a trade, care for the land and
care for their "hearts"! Fr. Marc is a remarkable man taking care of our most precious individuals - children - with respect and loyalty! Free The Kids uses its funds directly to provide for the young
people so they can eventually stand on their own two feet and truly make a difference. With Haiti only
1 1/2 hours from our shores and our great abundance in our country, we have the opportunity to reach
out and change the life of a child forever! at Hope Village. Free the Kids and Pwoje Espwa is a remarkable
sanctuary on earth.

A wonderful organization that truly puts the children first. I have spent time with espwa for over 10 years and find it to be an oasis in southwest Haiti. The children are loved, taken care of and educated.

Free the Kids and Pwoje Espwa give me hope that Haiti is finally moving in the right direction. The kids being educated there are going to grow up and make Haiti a better place for generations to come. Father Marc is an inspirational figure.

It would be impossible to describe the love and care provided to the vulnerable children of Haiti at Pwoje Espwa. In a desperate country Espwa provides hope and a future to its children. I visited last February and plan to return in December. The people there make it possible through hard work and dedication. Donations are put to efficient use. Extremely low (3.2%) administrative expenses. Check out the financials at www.freethekids.org.

People at Espwa are very caring and want to see the children succeed. They have been growing by leaps and bounds, but at all times the comfort and safety of the children has been the number one concern. The children are so happy and rambunctious, it was a blast working with them.

This organization is being run by a very, very caring staff. The children at the orphanage are very fortunate to have a place where they can be cared for and given a wonderful education and a chance at success in life. Fr. Mark came to our church twice and described the conditions they have to contend with. I sponsor a child each month that goes towards his education.

Role: Professional with expertise in this field
Rating: 5 stars  

In a country over run by failure, this is a true success story. 600 orphaned and vulnerable children no longer face illiteracy, ill health and potential early death. 1,600 more young Haitians get free education, food and basic health care.

I have traveled to Espwa, Haiti TWICE and have been blown away on how much Love and care there is for these children. No one is turned away! Volunteers and staff work effortlessly daily making sure that all of the children's needs are met...physically, emotionally and spiritually . God Bless you Fr. Mark and your team! You are making a positive difference in these children's lives. Dianne Joy

I traveled to Haiti and to Project Hope 2 times. Going to Haiti and seeing how hard life is changes the way you see the world. The work being done at Project Hope is amazing. The effect of this village of Hope for the children and the entire community is so uplifting. So much is being done. New ideas are welcome. You can see real progress for the children and people of Haiti every day. I so loved the Haitian people. They have the ability to keep going and are very hard working and happy with very little. Father Marc and the staff do so much to change lives everyday. Any help we can provide goes a long way to make this possible.
