Espwa on CNN!

Haiti is a captivating place. Its natural beauty, coupled with the rich culture and resilient people make it one of a kind. But the abject poverty continually draws Americans and NGOs in to help ‘fix’ problems. Each person you ask seems to have a different perception of how Haiti became the way it is, as well as why people continue to serve there.

This past week, The Espwa Foundation was featured in a op-ed that highlighted why many Christians serve in Haiti. Two of our projects, Jovenel’s farm and Haitian Creole Tour, were called out specifically as empowering Haitians through relationships built on mutual trust and dignity. Check it out!

Pittsburgh Marathon 2017

Hello all! We wanted to share some news about the upcoming Pittsburgh Marathon. This will be our second year participating in the Run for a Reason campaign. Runners can choose to raise money for a charity as they participate in any of the weekend’s races (Full, Half, or Marathon Relay).  The race weekend is May 6 – 7, 2017.

This year, we are excited to announce that two half marathon runners, as well as three marathon relay teams have chosen to run and raise money for Espwa. We look forward to a fun weekend in May.

If you also desire to run for Espwa, please contact us as soon as possible, as the race registration will close on March 31, 2017. To see who’s running for us and to donate to their pages, click the button below:
