Once known as the Pearl of the Antilles due to its natural beauty, today Haiti is more widely known as the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Haiti is often viewed as an ugly shell covered with barnacles of poverty, political unrest, disease and hopelessness.

Just as a pearl’s luster can not be seen or appreciated from outside the shell, the inner beauty and value of the people and country of Haiti is frequently overlooked or misunderstood by the outside world.

Like the grain of sand lodged in an oyster, the Haitian people have irritants including lack of education, sustenance and healthcare embedded in their lives. Through empowering partnerships and increased opportunities, children and their families are enabled to surround these daily struggles with their God-given abilities, perseverance and renewed hope leading to beautiful transformation.

The Haitian people are luminous pearls who simply need partners to come alongside to help open the shell so their God-given beauty and value can be fully realized. PEARLS provides these needed partners through people like YOU! Please consider becoming a partner in our vision to enrich academics and resources leading to sustainability in Bonnette, Haiti!
