This is a view into our Latapi school, which is held in our church. We do not have designated classrooms but our teachers make it work! We are grateful for our 5 schools and our dedicated teachers and school directors - we know that education is vital in providing success and opportunity for these children’s futures. Most of these children were not able to go to school before we started one here in the church because of poverty. We believe every child deserves an education, which opens up a world of opportunity and better lives ahead for themselves and their families.
Contact Camille@chances4children.org to learn more about our education program and opportunities to sponsor students yearly to provide for their tuition, school supplies, and uniforms.

Yesterday we drove out to Hatte Chevreau and Model to do some much needed work in our villages. This video shows our 2 clinic doctors and 2 nurses working hard in our Model church. Kids with skin problems and kids who were really sick were cared for in both of these villages. One girl had an extremely infected finger and our nurse was able to clean it out to begin the healing process and provided medications for her family to help it continue to heal. We are truly proud of our medical team for all of the work they did with only a few hours in each location.
We are incredibly to go to our villages as the situation in the country has calmed down some, we pray that we can continue to this year. We also did some education projects, interviewed pastors, and checked in on how their water filters have been working. Today we head to another village to do the same! God is good!

We are so grateful for our dental clinic!
One of our little ones chipped his two front teeth, and Dr. Alexandre did a wonderful job repairing them. This would not have been possible without the support of Highlands Church! ... See MoreSee Less

We love this little man!! E is one of the bravest, strongest, intelligent, loving, steady-minded children we have had in our crèche. This week he has been having some pain in his stomach and legs, so we ask that you would be lifting him up in prayer! As some of you know, E has sickle cell anemia and deals with episodes of pain due to lack of blood flow, which come more often in the winter when it is colder. He is one brave little man and grows stronger mentally and emotionally every single day. We love him so!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” - Jeremiah 29:11

2 young boys took it upon themselves to start a fundraiser for shoes. They went door to door in their neighborhood and before they knew it, other neighbors were wanting to participate, and it even spread to their school. Hundreds of shoes were sent to us by them. What a blessing these 2 boys are to our crèche kids, church, feeding programs and so many others! We love the ways people step in to help serve those in Haiti no matter their age!

Our Zel ladies are hard at work making quality medical scrubs! Zel, the Creole word for “wings,” employs 9 women to help provide for their families and continue one of our organization’s goals of keeping families together through job creation.
More than 2/3 of Haiti’s population do not have formal jobs, leaving too many families without money for food, education tuition, and other necessities, which contributes to Haiti’s orphan epidemic.
Each and every one of these women work extremely hard 4 days a week making yoga bags and medical scrubs. They all love the work they do and are grateful for consistent work!

Today marks the 10th anniversary of Haiti’s most deadly earthquake, which killed nearly 250,000 people and injured roughly 300,000 Haitians. Most homes and structures in Haiti are made from cement, which quickly crumbled from the quake. This disaster added to Haiti’s decades of political, economic, and social setbacks and inequalities. Despite efforts to improve the country’s situation, Haiti has continued to suffer and corruption runs rampant.
We remember this day and honor those who lost their lives. We pray alongside those who continue to hope and strive for better futures. The strength of Haitians cannot be matched, they continue to fight for a better Haiti.

Happy New Year from us all at Chances for Children!! Today also marks 216 years of independence in Haiti! In 1804, Haiti became the world’s first black-led republic when the Haitians overthrew the French colonial control and abolished slavery within the country. However, despite their freedom, Haitians have experienced challenges ever since due to deforestation across the land, a debt paid to the French for 30 years, natural disasters, overpopulation, food insecurity, and political instability, among other challenges. Today Haitians eat soup joumou (pumpkin soup) to symbolize their freedom since the French rulers did not allow them to eat this delicacy.
We fight alongside Haitians every day to help provide better lives and greater opportunities. 2019 was the most difficult year our organization has experienced with more challenges and roadblocks (literally) than ever due to political corruption and many other factors, but we also saw God work in mighty ways, providing for our needs and the needs of those we serve. While the challenges may not slow down in 2020, we live every day trusting in God’s greater plan and continue to do what we can to help serve every child and family to the best of our ability.
Lespwa fè viv. •Haitian Proverb• Hope makes one live.
Cheers to a year full of hope, love, growth, and trust!
