Le Bon Samaritain (formerly known as Marie Madeleine) founded in August 2012. Rev. Jean Berthold Fanor the current pastor and a lay leader Wilker Casimir showed us their school and guest house. There are 300 students enrolled with 9 teachers employed.
OUR MISSION is to care for the physical, spiritual, educational and future employment needs of nearly 300 orphaned and vulnerable children. Our goal is to grow leaders of faith who will change the nation of Haiti! Our community will house the children in family style residences with house parents loving the kids (no institutional dorm style living), an activity center and soccer program will provide healthy opportunities for our kids and the community to interact and our education program will teach critical thinking (vs rote memorization, the current model in Haiti) all of which will ensure the hopes and dreams of these children will become a reality.
