About Us

Haiti Orphanage Project ESPWA is an Irish NGO established in 2011 by a group of volunteers to support vulnerable children in Haiti.  The organisation’s primary goal is to provide facilities and implement best practice for disadvantaged children in Haiti.  Our current project on the island of Ille a Vache is an orphanage catering for over 70 children, 30 of whom have special needs.

Our achievements to date include new dormitories; a new kitchen and canteen facilities; pathways for wheelchair access; Water & Sanitation and livelihoods training for Haitian team members.

Haiti Orphanage Project ESPWA relies exclusively on public fundraising.  We do not currently receive any government funding.  Our fundraising is channeled into project costs including materials, labour costs and equipment.   All the work we carry out is on a voluntary basis, with our team giving freely of their time and expertise.  In other words 100% of donations go directly to our projects in Haiti.
