Our Projects

Community Service

Our main goal is to improve literacy in Gressier community. We do believe by feeding both the parents and the children with the bread of education we will create a better future for Haiti.

We also provide health care, and social work in the area.

Our orphanage

Our future orphanage is designed to accommodate one hundred thirty children. We seek to raise our children in a safe, controlled and clean environment. The building is designed and decorated with a children’s theme and comfort in mind.

We are currently serving 25 children.

Stars Academy:

We are currently serving 25 children in a makeshift building made from scraps from our destroyed building since the earthquake of 2010.


Our school STARS ACADEMY will be situated on 15 acres of land on Route Nationale #2 south, approximately 30 miles out of the center of Port-au-Prince. Our student body will compose of 400 students which 80 percent will be underserved children from the Gressier area and 20 percent will be affluent students from different countries. The school will provide guidance and room and board to out of town students.


Our funding source will rely on donations, direct sponsorship of students, private pay students, fundraising and the proceeds from the selling of goods and services from the farm, thrift store and cafeteria.


Our vision is to create the school of the future for Haiti, where students will receive a bilingual education, training in agriculture and discipline in Taekwondo. Students will also be exposed to other cultures through the use of language and interaction with foreigners.
