Participating in the Project

Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the western hemisphere with a per capita income of less than $2.00/day for 80% of the population. Public education is not provided and education must be privately funded. Your gift will help support a child's primary education!

Join your fellow congregants & pledge $100 each year for five years. The Haiti Committee donates approximately $8,000-$10,000 per year to NICL to help provide support in the areas of teacher salaries, tuition scholarships for those families in extreme need, and for equipment/facility enhancement for the school.

Use this form to make a pledge, to express interest in participating in a future mission trip to Haiti or to volunteer to work on the committee.

For information about the following program aspects, please contact the co-chairs of the Haiti Project
