I have known of this charity for some time from afar, but last year I volunteered to help and recently became a board member and secretary. I support this organization because in my opinion it is touching the most important things that can be done in Haiti.

First, it is partnering in community work with the Haitians themselves. The chronic and overwhelming problems of Haiti will be solved ultimately and only by the Haitians themselves. This charity is working directly with Christian Haitians dedicated to solving their own problems.

Second, the Foundation is doing the things that will eventually help the Haitians solve the biggest challenge of all, the population explosion, by working to keep girls in school and children adequately cared for. It has been proven world-wide that when girls are educated the birth rate plummets when they understand birth control and that their children will survive.

Third, they are attempting to help a middle class emerge. A middle class imbued with Christian values will solve the vexing problems of Haiti. The Foundation is helping with scholarships for advanced education and with cooperative cultural activities and projects to create a middle class in the village of Fond Doux, Haiti. It is a small step, but it is the right step in my opinion.
