"If you build it, they will come."
Haiti is home to some of the most breathtaking views on earth. People that know these views all too well are the villagers in the mountains of Haiti. Unfortunately, these same people are often forgotten about and abandoned. People in the mountains make up over 40% of Haiti's population and they are the people that need our help the most.
Lespwa Academy will be built on 3 acres of land in the village of Brely, Haiti. The mountains 60 miles north of the nations capital, Port au Prince.
People often question the decision for going so far into the mountains when building an organization. They claim it will be too difficult as it is not conveniently accessible or located near enough resources.
These people are right. However, we at Lespwa are not here out of convenience. We are not choosing who to help based on ease; we are committed to helping those who others will not. We know it will be more difficult; we know it may take longer; but we also know that it will be worth it. Most importantly, we know that these people desperately need it.
We need to raise $5,000 USD in order to purchase the 3 acres on which our facility will be built. This is the first step of many. We need your help, every donation counts in assisting us in reaching our goal.
