Caring for Kids
We've partnered with three children's homes to provide complete care for children.
Physical & Spiritual Care
Every child deserves a safe place to grow up. We provide a clean, secure, and safe environment where urgent physical needs are immediately met. This includes administering medical care, addressing malnutrition, and providing safe water. We desire for all of our kids to know the love of Christ. Every child is loved and cared for by Christian caretakers.
We believe every child deserves a quality education. PKF has partnered with Haitian educators to to build a preschool, a primary school, a secondary school, and a vocational school. All of our schools are accredited by the Haitian government and staffed by Haitian teachers. We award academic scholarships that enable students to attend local Haitian universities.
Support Children in Haiti
Through our sponsorship program, you can support kids in Haiti and form a connection with a student in Haiti. Your monthly sponsorship ensures that our partner Children’s Homes will continue to provide access to shelter, food, and a quality Christian education. We’ll also help you get to know the children you are supporting.
Nestled on the edge of Cap Haitien, EBAC is the first orphanage PKF supported. Two missionaries, Kathy and Alice, have run EBAC since the 80s. The orphanage now supports over 100 children who attend school on the grounds.
IDADEE was founded by young adults that grew up at EBAC; God gave them a vision for a new home that could save even more orphan children. IDADEE now cares for 42 kids between the ages of 3 and 10.
New Vision Children's Home
Together, Pastor Jean Claude and his wife Monica run NVCH where they care for 11 children. Jean Claude, who grew up at EBAC, pastors two local churches and is one of the founders of the IDADEE Children's Home.
Surf City Haiti
Surf City Haiti is a week-long, high energy summer camp that focuses on fun, discipleship, and equipping kids at the three children’s homes to be leaders in their communities.
Summer Fest is IDADEE’s week-long community day camp, held on the IDADEE campus. Over 1000 children and 200 adults from the local community attend each year.
Empowering Local Leaders
PKF Haiti projects have created 209 sustainable jobs in Haiti.
Heart of the Community
The CHIDA Hospital at IDADEE serves children and adults in the community. The modern 15-bed hospital provides reliable and affordable health care for all; no patient is ever turned away due to lack of finances. In its first year, the CHIDA Hospital served 9,614 patients. The hospital continues to grow in both scope of care and volume of patients. Currently, the emergency room treats an average of 74 patients per day, while the community health program serves an additional 200 people daily in the surrounding community.
This Haitian-run hospital creates a space for Haitian medical professionals and American medical teams to serve side by side. Medical Director, Dr. Wislyn Avenard, grew up at the EBAC children's home. CHIDA has created 82 local jobs and employs 30 community health workers.
The IDADEE Primary School opened in 2015, and serves 160 children from IDADEE and the community. It has created 31 sustainable jobs.
The IDADEE Secondary School opened in the fall of 2017. It provides a high quality, Christ-centered secondary education for its 52 students. No child is turned away because of lack of finances.
The IDADEE Vocational School is scheduled to open in the fall of 2019. It will provide another vehicle for transforming the local community by teaching essential job and business skills.
Water and Sanitation
Safe Water Changes Everything
We are proud to partner with Water Mission to bring safe water and sanitary latrines to the communities we serve. Together we have drilled 9 wells and installed 9 safe water systems that serve 30,000 people. We've built 800 sanitary latrines in the IDADEE community, that benefit 6,400 people.
Farm Land Project
PKF recently purchased 30 acres of local farmland to provide food for our children, feed the poor, and provide jobs in the community
Micro Loans, Big Impact
The first micro business-loans were awarded in June of 2016. This expanding program will help jump start the local economy by empowering Haitians to start their own small business. Read about Frantz and his business, Haitian Creole Tour.
