Project Development

At Timoun Kontan we believe in grassroots development. This means that we want to offer programs that we know the communities want. Our Haitian staff is integral in this process as they are members of the community. They aid us in building relationships with the less fortunate members of society. The Haitian staff also leads the research for Timoun Kontan by conducting surveys which we use to create programs with the goal of sustainable development.

Scholarship Program

Timoun Kontan believes that all children have a right to education. In Haiti primary and secondary education is not free. We offer a scholarship program to children whose families cannot afford school. Our scholarship program provides tuition, food, uniforms, and school supplies. Timoun Kontan currently provides scholarships to 9 children and we hope to have 15 by August 2019.

Community center

Timoun Kontan is fundraising to build a community center. It will include a library, onsite nurse and exam rooms, kitchen, and play area. We will also host educational seminars at the community center. These seminars will be about job training, health education, and family planning. Additionally, after discovering the corruption within the orphanage system, we knew that we would have to find a way to help children, who do not have families, without going through a local orphanage. To overcome this dilemma, we decided to expand our community center by adding an additional floor that will serve as a children’s home. This home will be open only to children who don’t have families of their own. We don’t believe that anyone should have to give up their child in hopes of them having a better life. We have three children in our scholarship program without families who would stay in the home. Currently they are staying with community members until it is built.
