Happy Holidays from Espwa Demen!

We are excited to announce our plans for this year’s Christmas program, which will be held in two different areas of Haiti that are central to our sponsor students. Each student will be requested to attend with one parent or guardian. 

Because of the crisis in Haiti we have decided to place a bigger emphasis on the spiritual and financial well-being of the families rather than preparation for the school year.

The program will consist of: the reading of Jesus’s birth account, snacks, music, games, the giving of gift bags, and the distribution of an animal to each family which will help them generate additional income in the next year.

We hope you will join in making this possible!

Help Us Fill Student Gift Bags

This collage shows what will be included in each gift bag. 

A Jesus Storybook Bible translated in Haitian Creole, some snacks, and new pencils all inside a drawstring bag.

You can help us fill them by:

  • Purchasing the bags or Bible story books from our Amazon wish list.
  • Purchasing granola bars, candy canes, and pencils locally.

New students will receive a backpack as well as a welcome to our school program.
