Walk for Economic Empowerment - Team Haiti
A team for PEER SERVANTS
"Walk for Economic Empowerment - Haiti" is a team to help PEER Servants raise funds for ACLAM, a Christian MFI in Haiti.
What Haitians need most is access to opportunity. They don't need any more handouts; rather, they need programs that will build their dignity and give them a hand-up. This is especially true given the fact that the majority of Haitians live on $2 or less per day.
That's where ACLAM (Action Contre La Misère) comes in. ACLAM is a Haitian Christian microfinance institution addressing the needs of Haitian people. It has Haitian staff who know the needs of the Haitian people. It extended an invitation to PEER Servants to partner with it in 2000, and the organizations have been working together to extend the kingdom of heaven to Haiti ever since. Thousands have already received loans that have helped them start or grow small businesses and create jobs, but tens of thousands remain to be served.
Please click on "Fundraise" to the right and join Team Haiti to raise $5,000+ to create opportunities for the people of Haiti. 100% of what we raise will go to ACLAM. You can walk right where you are when convenient with you, or join others on Team Haiti at the following Walks:
If you have donors who prefer to give offline, ask them to make checks out to "PEER Servants" and give/mail them to you. Then just bring them to the Walk or mail them to PEER Servants at PO Box 258, Woburn, MA 01801. Please include a slip noting your name and the team you are on. You can also add the offline donations to your fundraising page to show the progress in meeting your fundraising goal.
May God bless you richly and multiply many times over what we can raise together to bless the people of Haiti.
