In February 2013, a group from Embrace traveled to Haiti for our first mission trip in partnership with Mission Haiti. During that trip, we visited a school of 150 kids in the small, mountain village of Jabouin. The kids didn’t have a school building, and after seeing the need first-hand it was clear that we needed to do something as a church. Alongside Mission Haiti, we built a school for the kids in Jabouin called (a)mbrase lekol, the Embrace School.
Since 2013, we’ve continued sponsoring kids, added additional space to the school, and sent teams to Haiti every year.

Haiti shoe drive
Some students who attend (a)mbrase lekol walk up to three hours one way to get to school each week. Help us collect 1,450 pairs of good-quality shoes to make that journey easier. Watch for updates on future collection campaigns!
Send a kid to one of our schools.
Your contribution of $25 a month will ensure that each student is given the necessary resources—meals, books, clothes—to succeed in the classroom, along with allowing us to continue developing the (a)mbrase lekol school.
