Foundation Pierre Smith Mondelus (FPSM) is a Christ-centered ministry established to empower the residents of villages in Northern Haiti by equipping them for neighborhood revitalization through sustainable personal, community, and economic development. FPSM was founded as a cooperative effort between Haitian and American leaders in 2017. The Christian five-member Haitian ministry team serves in rural Milot, enabling a grass-roots assessment of local needs. Members include co-founder Vero, one of two leaders with degrees in Business Administration, one leader trained in literacy education, and Marcot, our church pastor. Co-founder Shannon, as a missionary for 3 years, worked closely with these individuals. Programs are developed and implemented by consensus between the Haitian leaders and the American board. Growing Christ’s Kingdom in His love is the focus of our ministry. Initial Haitian-ministry-led programs include evangelism, an annual Bible camp for 150 youth, and a weekly Bible study that has grown to over 200 participants in 4 years. In January 2021, a church was planted from the fruit of the Bible study drawing 150-200 weekly to the Baptist service and 40-50 to prayer. After six months, in an area heavily influenced by voodoo, enthusiasm for the Word is demonstrated in many professions of faith, 30 baptisms and 6 weddings. An added focus of FPSM is to engage Haiti’s estimated 50% illiteracy rate, a root factor to poverty’s perpetuation. In 4 years, 60 adults have participated in literacy training. Graduates are offered a 6-month business program with a microloan opportunity. Since all education in Haiti is private, FPSM provides tuition for 16 youth. Despite gratifying progress, more comprehensive methods to empower and equip Haitian men, women, and children are needed. The endemic cycle of poverty and hopelessness can be severed through Christian-aligned educational opportunities, from preschool to adulthood. Critical thinking and entrepreneurial skills will be introduced to a generation of Haitian youth via a Christian-based primary and secondary school curriculum, focused upon classical education. In the fall of 2021, twenty 3-4-year-old students will enroll, with twenty more 3-4-year-olds to be added annually. Haitian adults will be equipped through agricultural and entrepreneurial education. Classes in graphic design and coding, via video conferencing, have utilized volunteer professors of US academic institutions. Where applicable, instruction will focus upon utilization of the global economy. This fall, a Haitian seamstress will teach sewing instruction, including methods for a sustainable business model. A Christian seminary will equip students with a sound theological education in conjunction with a marketable trade, critical if a Haitian pastor is to feed his family while he spiritually feeds his congregation. Classes utilizing video conferencing, taught by volunteer American seminary professors, are planned for early 2022
