Our Many Hands for Haiti Team

Where We Work

Many Hands operates in the greater area of Pignon, located in the Central Plateau of Haiti. A farming community, there are over 150,000 people in the region.

Pignon, Haiti

Pignon is one of the most popular centers for agricultural development in the country. The area is known for producing sugar cane, conga beans, and other crops. Though poverty affects the area, it’s become increasingly important for providing food security across the region.

Our Campuses

Sylvain – Home Base

The Sylvain campus serves as a hub for our work, supporting our Love-in-Action centers, and the growth of the region. It features a Love-in-Action center, a preschool, and grade school, farm land, community gardens, living quarters, solar electricity, and clean water. Our long-term missionaries live on campus so that they can live day-to-day life with the people of Sylvain.
