At the end of 2015, the vision for Kairos Village in Iquitos, Peru finally materialized. Sarah Bessey hosted a dinner in Raleigh. We put together an event with Jen Hatmaker…twice! (The first was cancelled due to snow). We took Willie & Mercedes Malpartida to Haiti to see Ferrier Village and meet our amazing kids & leaders…from that point on, we found the momentum we had been looking for. We broke ground in the fall of 2016, and we will complete construction of Phase 1 and begin rescuing kids in 2017! This is a beautiful story of collaboration, vision, patience & grit…soon to be a beautiful story of restoration.
In October of 2015, we took 7 ladies down to Haiti. Not celebrities. Not influencers. Not particularly wealthy. But they saw a need, we issued a challenge, and they committed to make it happen. By the summer of 2016, these 7 ladies from Arkansas had raised $175,000 for a new children’s home at Yahve Shamma. Now, construction is nearly complete and the children will move in the first week of July. These kids deserved a better place to live…and now they have it!
and friends for the LIVE ORIGINAL TOUR. A 16 city tour last fall, helping us gain a whole new tribe of over 1,100 people, called THE ONE SQUAD
around the world; including dormitories in Uganda, hurricane relief in Haiti, family empowerment in Ethiopia, and Help One Classroom
In July of 2016, we headed off to Ethiopia with a motley crew and an audacious goal. HON Local Leader, Aschalew Abebe, and his team impressed us more than ever with their remarkable work of family empowerment. We met dignified women with thriving businesses. We had ZERO internet. We raised ZERO money while on the ground. Yet, somehow we pulled off the biggest single fundraiser of our brief history. As a result, 300 families in Wolaita Sodo, Ethiopia will be empowered over the course of the next 4-5 years — the ripple effect will be HUGE! Before the trip, the goal seemed too big…and everything stacked against us while on the trip…failure looked imminent, yet we pushed through and knocked it out of the park!
In October of 2016, Hurricane Matthew ravaged the Caribbean. The southwest peninsula of Haiti took the brunt of the storm as the eye slowly passed the already impoverished area. Tens of thousands lost their lives, and hundreds of thousands more their homes. The region’s greatest asset was that of agriculture, but Matthew destroyed almost every crop from the coastal town of Jeramie to Les Cayes, just a few hours from the nation’s capitol. The devastation will threaten food security for decades to come, and many say the over-all impact will be worse than that of the great earthquake in 2010. The needs were great and still are, but many of you stepped right in to join our local leaders in answering the call to help.
