A Visit From the President!

Wow, what a surprise! The President elect of Haiti, Jovenel Moïses, visited Pwoje Espwa on New Year's Day! 

As he entered the gates with an entourage, children and staff excitedly gathered around to greet him and to understand why we were the recipients of such a special visit. After a short tour of our grounds lead by Father Marc, Moïses gave a speech where he announced that he came to Espwa after hearing about the work that we do and being inspired by the mission through which that work is driven. He stated that he felt it was necessary to congratulate us in person for preparing future generations of Haiti. 

What an exciting way to start off 2017!
