In a beleaguered and chaotic third world nation such as Haiti where the average family income has been reported to be approximately $11 a week in the communities in which these schools are located, the only eternal hope is to love Jesus Christ as Lord and savior. The only hope this side of Heaven is to keep the kids alive nutritionally while giving them a solid Christian education so that they can gain employment and rise above the chains of poverty. Pastor Edmond believes that the only hope for Haiti is to educate Haiti’s children. This ministry is the best example of the well-known principle, “Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach him to fish and feed him for a lifetime.” If there is hope for our most destitute next door neighbor in the Western Hemisphere, this ministry of evangelism, discipleship, feeding, and educating children is the best way to get the job done.

Bridges Farms

In 2003, Kanakuk Haiti established a strategic partnership with Bridges Farms in St. Michael, an innovative 21,000-acre vegetable growing operation established by Garrett Robinson. As we provide tractors, trucks and farm implements to this little Haitian ministry, not only are we feeding hungry people but also providing jobs for many impoverished Haitian citizens.
