What is Poverty?



For the poor, poverty goes beyond a simple a lack of resources.  Espwa is a non-profit organization that fights the root causes of poverty by empowering the people of Haiti. Espwa means “hope” in Haitian Creole.



Our Solution


At Espwa, we go deeper than throwing money at problems because we know that poverty can’t be fixed that way. We focus on building relationships, empowering Haitians, and sharing the love of Christ. We’re in it for the long haul, and we hope you’ll join our cause. To learn more, visit the pages below.
