About this Mission Project

The 2010 earthquake in Haiti devastated colleges and universities in the Port au Prince area. The Université Chrétienne du Nord d’Haiti (UCNH) in Limbe was not damaged in the quake. They opened their doors to the future leaders of Haiti – mostly college juniors and seniors.

The university has begun construction on a new women’s dorm that will eventually house 200 female students from far away. The first phase of the project will allow UCNH to receive 50 students but first, the rooms need to be furnished.

Gifts and donations have been given to pour the foundation, purchase all the doors and cover the cost of shipping supplies and clearing customs.

Mission Project Specifics

This project seeks to raise $10,000 to purchase 25 bunk beds for 50 young women at the Université Chrétienne du Nord d’Haiti. This project will be managed by Rev. Dr. Jules Casséus, Rector of the University.

It is anticipated that this project will provide a safe and comfortable place for female students, enabling them to pursue their chosen course of study. Eventually, the dorm will house up to 200 students from far beyond Limbe.

The UCNH makes it possible for students to complete their studies in theology, business administration, agriculture and agronomy. Each of these fields are critical for Haiti’s long-term recovery and sustainability.
