Welcome to Haiti Orphanage Project ESPWA

Haiti Orphanage Project ESPWA (HOPE) is a fully registered Irish charity dedicated to providing facilities and implementing best practice for disadvantaged children in Haiti.  Our experiences of visiting orphanages in Haiti convinced us that we could make a difference and at the very least we should try.

Utilizing the wide range of skills of our volunteers in focused and efficient project delivery allows us to directly improve life for Haiti’s vulnerable children.  We are a non-denominational, non-governmental and non-political organisation.

Espwa is the Haitian Creole word for hope.
