Empowering Lives Together is a 501(c)3 non-profit, non-denominational Christian organization that assists people residing near Petite-Rivière, Haiti and the surrounding area.  We work as encouragers by nurturing relationships, helping develop skills and providing the initial means to allow people to become self supporting.  This in turn, enables them to give back to their community and encourage others.  Working with the extraordinary talents and eagerness of the villagers, projects are funded and then people are taught how to run the small businesses.  It becomes theirs not ours.  Our goal is always to “give a hand up- not a handout”.  It is a blessing to plant the seeds and then watch them grow.

Deuteronomy 31:6 encourages us with “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes

with you, he will never leave you or forsake you.”

Prayerfully consider what God would lay on your heart to donate to these efforts. You can use the donate option or send your donation to the address under contacts.

Jeremiah 29:11    For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
