Where we work

We work in the greater area of Pignon, located on the north side of the Central Plateau of Haiti, a rural area with a tropical climate and rugged beauty. Many in Pignon are farmers, growing mainly sugar cane and conga beans. Also, many live below the poverty line in mud and stick houses.

Our Campus

Our home-base for transforming lives

Based in beautiful Sylvain, a rural farming community just outside of the town of Pignon, our campus serves to build and support the growth of the community both physically and spiritually.
