    Project Overview

    Builders International is in the process of this community development project. The project is planned to include a church, grade school, medical clinic space and water well. In a country where the unemployment rate is 80% and 88% of the population survive on less than $2 per day, hope seems to be out of reach for many. This strategically placed facility will enable this outreach to bring lasting change and hope to a community with great social and spiritual need. COST: $280,600. Cost reflects a school, chapel, medical clinic, well, bathrooms and septic system. - School w/bathrooms – $80,500 - Chapel - $102,000 - Clinic - $91,800 - Well - $6,300

    In order to build, we need team members to come alongside these efforts. No one should be expected to work alone, and that includes our missionaries in the field. Builders International is in place to come alongside them and be a network of teams and resources to help complete these projects and move them toward greater effectiveness in their area. For this to happen we need more people to pick up a hammer, to make the leap to the other side of the world, and to enjoy the life changing experience of being a part of the team. Sign up now to get away and start your international adventure.

    As you extend your financial resources to this project, you not only meet the need in this area, but provide great encouragement to the missionaries and people working toward this effort. The effect is widespread. Not only does it make a huge impact on those directly involved, but it ripples out and penetrates deep into the surrounding community. When our hearts are moved together to do something, giving is a natural response. We give of our time, ourselves, our skill, our physical abilities and of our financial resources. In unique cases like this, the dividends are huge and make lasting changes. Thank you for sharing what you've been given!

      Over 300 gathered in Zorange to celebrate the dedication of a new church building on December 12th. Many thanks to Pastor Andy and Pastor Phil from New Life of Trumbull, CT for all their work to make this project happen! Richard and Kelly Green finished construction on the church facility in October. The next step is the school and clinic facility.

      The first structure is the church, New Life is back in Haiti right now and will complete the church this week. As well, we were able to get two wells installed for the price of one. One is on the church property and the other is just outside open to the community. Before these water wells were installed, this community had to walk 2 miles for the water
