Our Mission

Grangou is the Haitian Creole word for hungry and the name of our ministry dedicated to raising awareness about the extreme difficulties of life in Haiti as well as feeding the hearts, minds, and bodies of Haitians in need. Our desire is to reach a nation hungry for hope and change; one child at a time.

Special Projects

  • October Matching Campaign

    We are excited to share an amazing opportunity with you!!! A generous donor is anxious to see us wrap up the home purchase and help make up the monthly shortfall we currently have for general expenses. They are willing to match up to $30,000 to meet these needs! Any donation or sponsorship that comes in during the month of October will be doubled up to that amount!!! Praise God! With a balance of $36,181 to complete the house purchase, with the donation and matching funds we could pay off the house early! We have a monthly gap of $2400 between operating expenses and recurring donations (not including school expenses), a full match would cover this shortfall for the next 10 months! You can even sign up for a sponsorship or recurring donation and the amount committed to for the year will be matched! Already a sponsor, share with your friends or church! Every dollar counts because every dollar is doubled!

  • A Home Of Our Own

    Grangou has been assisting with renting homes for Travay Bondye since the doors opened in 2010 and is currently in their 5th property. This has been difficult since standard family homes are not designed to accommodate large numbers and moving frequently is disruptive to the children who already have a history of instability. The great news is, we have the opportunity to change this! The current home, as of October 2017, is for sale and it was designed as a home for children! It has 7 small houses (9 rooms) on a large property each with their own bathrooms and shower. There is a large yard, basketball court, storage and a covered multipurpose room for meals and group meetings. It is perfect! The cost of the property is $285,000 plus legal fees. We need your help to complete the purchase! Can you commit to a one-time donation or a recurring payment for the next year to help us reach this goal and provide stability, safety and a HOME for the kids? June 2020 - Update! We made the down payment of $100,000 and our first payment. Our next payment of $60,000 is due in September 2020 and $47,000 is due in September 2021. We have the $60,000 for September 2020 plus another $23,000 to go for the final payment. We need only $24,000 to complete the purchase and roughly$14,000 in legal and transfer fees and then the kids can have a PERMANENT HOME! Almost there!
