What we aim to solve

Economic and Spiritual Poverty. The 2010 earthquake destroyed the building that the church in Port-au-Prince, Haiti (The International Churches of Christ - Haiti) used for its worship services. The church currently meets under a gazebo on land that it owns. It has no walls and a has a tin roof.

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Better HAITI’s goal is to assist the church in Port-au-Prince, Haiti in building a first-rate multi-use meeting facility that will help the church to support itself. ​

Leverage resources around the world, but primarily in the U.S., inside and outside of the church, to advance the work in Haiti. We plan to establish technical advisory panels of architects, engineers and contractors within our fellowship of churches worldwide who can assist us with this project. We also plan to utilize the expertise of legal, financial, accounting and IT professionals within our fellowship of churches worldwide. https://www.disciplestoday.org/introducing-better-haiti

We are a small non profit and we have just started on our journey. But we believe that we can accomplish our goals, through hard work, ingenuity, teamwork and most importantly through our faith in God.

There are a number of measures along the road. First is the number of regularly contributing members to our organization. Next, is how successful our fundraising efforts are in terms of raising the necessary fund to construct a first class venue for our church in Haiti. Then is the actual construction of the building. And the ultimate measure of progress of our progress is the overall health and well being of our churches in Haiti.

We have organized as a non profit. We have started to get the word out and spread the news about what we are doing. We are rallying people to our cause and will continue to do so.
