Shepherd’s House Orphanage Project: We are excited that you are joining with us in the mandate given to Evangelist Aaron Nelson and his wife Nathalie Nelson to help the less fortunate in Haiti, the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.
Our Goals and Vision:
The SHM was organized exclusively for charitable purposes. Specifically, our main activities are as follows:
A Better Life:
Daily life is a struggle of survival for the children in Haiti. An estimated 65 percent of the population lives in poverty. In Rural areas that number is about 80 percent. More than 200 000 kids live in the streets. Our goal is to save as many as we can by bringing them off the streets and out of poverty to a new home and teach them the skills necessary to lift themselves out of misery and into a bright future.
Infant mortality is 76 per 1,000 births. More than 1 child in 10 died before the age of 5. There is only 1 physician for ever 17, 064 inhabitants. (Haiti population is about 9 million) Upon arrival at the organization, each child will receive a good health care program. We will hire a private doctor for them. Ever child will undergo several medical tests during their first 6 months and/or every time when need be. The best medicine and vitamins will be provided when needed.
Malnutrition affects almost every child in Haiti. At Shepherd’s House Ministries, the children will be provided with clean water, vitamins, and 3 meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner.)
40 percent of the population is under the age of 14. Close to half of primary aged children are not attending schools. Haiti had an illiteracy rate of over 55 percent, the highest in the Americas. Our children will attend a non-discriminatory primary-secondary school in the country. We will use every good tool necessary such as: Reading materials, tutors, field trips, and sports to better educate those precious souls. We believe that every child has a right to go to school and we will make it happen.
When one comes under, they will be fed, clothed, loved, and housed. They will receive treatment for their addictions and illnesses. They will be counseled, served, listened to, educated, and edified to their highest potential.
Operation Compassion is to provide, information, and resources to help fulfill the call to feed the hungry, care for the elderly and to reach out to those in need.
Men and Women of Action:
Our mission will provide men and women the opportunity to show the love of Christ by participating in hands-on ministry through volunteer service in construction, disaster relief and humanitarian assistance while enhancing other ministries so that they will be more effective, efficient and fruitful in their participation in the Great Commission.
To mobilize a generation of disciples that know, love and follow Jesus Christ and actively advance the kingdom of God to the nations of the earth. To cultivate a discipleship movement that will gather, equip, mobilize, and make disciples, that will perpetuate disciples that make disciples, leaders that develop leaders, and churches that plant churches.
To accomplish these goals, Shepherd’s House Ministries purchased land in Gressier, Haiti in June 2007. Engineering Ministries International (EMI) went to Haiti to design the orphanage at Shepherd’s House request. The design includes two Dormitories, a K-12 School, a Multiuse Building (with kitchen, dining, chapel, and study facilities), a Sports field and open space for the children to play and explore. Each dorm will house 100 children in ten bedrooms, one for girls and the other for boys. The school will allow the children to receive a traditional education with opportunities to learn trades and life skills.
Utilities are required to sustain and educate each child and the new property has no water or sewer and although electricity is nearby, it is expensive and undependable. Therefore this design includes potable water system with a well and for the waste water; a septic/leach field system. For power, a diesel back up generator is included. A future self sustaining electrical/power system is desired; possibility utilizing Solar power.
Please prayerfully consider how may become part of this labor of love to glorify God and serve the children of Haiti. We look forward to hearing how the Lord leads you. If you would like more information please contact us.
