The women of Haiti are precious to us and are the heart of their family. At A Light of Hope, we have a vision to bring the word of God to these women through bible studies.
These studies are written specifically for the women of Haiti. The goal is to create studies that can be lead and utilized right in the community. We want to jumpstart conversations and learning experiences for the women to learn more about God, themselves and each other.
One need that has become very apparent to ALOH in Haiti is the lack of resources available for these women to have bible study together. At ALOH we will be publishing women’s bible studies in their native language, creole. These will be given to the women we minister to, so they can study together on a long term basis. Each woman will also be equipped with a bible, whether it is a solar powered talking bible, or the written word of God in creole.
One of our goals at A Light of Hope, is to help create opportunities for sustainability within families in Haiti. We are hoping to do this through our Goat Farming Program.
Through this program we will purchase goats, with your donations, for selected families in the community of Mt. Kapyat. The families that receive these goats will be educated in caring for and breeding their goat. The first female goat produced from each family will be given back to ALOH so that it can in turn be given to another family to start the process. The other goats that they breed can be sold at the market to help support their family. The goal is that their goat will continue to be a source of value and income on an ongoing basis. If this is done correctly, the effect of the goat program will be far reaching and will bless generations to come.
The families receiving these goats and getting the much needed education in goat breeding is because of YOU and your donations to this project. YOU have created long term sustainability for a family and these families can turn from a mindset of survival to thriving.
One goat costs $50 and will provide for generations!
**To date, 30 families have started this program. Our goal is to equip 100 families in Mt. Kapyat with goats!
