United N.E.S.T. Foundation

Why Haiti?

Rural Haiti is where some of the poorest of the poor live, yet these people possess a relentless drive to overcome poverty.  Thanks to technologies such as satellites, smart phones, and solar electricity, changing the story of rural Haiti is only a matter of time.  Schools, churches, medical clinics, and micro-businesses are more real today than at any other point in Haiti’s history. 

Historically, Haitians needed to live in or near Port-Au-Prince in order to provide for their families. Still today, mothers often leave their children behind and travel for days to sell their goods at the market places. Our goal at United N.E.S.T. Foundation is to rewrite that story by planting micro-businesses, education, athletics, and health directly in these small villages; so these nests of families, parents, grandparents, and friends can stay together. We soundly believe families are stronger and healthier when they live in the country, away from the distress of Haiti’s larger cities; yet to make that belief a reality there needs to be a secure infrastructure.


How do we do this? 

Today, thanks to technology, we are able to bypass large organizations both in the United States and in Haiti to make real and sustainable change happen. We work directly with each community, their leaders, teachers, and pastors to establish a clear and attainable plan.  

 


What is a NEST?

Have you ever looked closely at a birds nest and marveled at the symbiotic beauty in Gods work? How delicate and intertwined, along with perfect design to hold life and sustain growth. Yet light and agile, small and big twigs relying on each other to keep a foundation together.

United N.E.S.T. Foundation chose the metaphor of a N.E.S.T. (Nourish, Empower, Strengthen, and Transform) for just the reason that it stands for; the strength of small and capable working together. For us, we absolutely believe in the collective wisdom of those who live in and around small villages.


 

A NEST is a safe harbor. It is a place to feel secure. A place where family and friends gather for shelter, reassurance, vision, and for prayer. A nest to take care of each other, to grow, to learn, and become.

 

 

A NEST is a community of people that are committed to one another in big and small ways.

A NEST is a place where families reach out for one another; a place where children thrive, businesses grow, and hands are joined.


A NEST is home!

A message from Ephraim, Executive Director and Founder of YAWH.

“Hey everyone,
Thank you for your continuous support and effort in making YAWH dreams become more real everyday!
The boys are enjoying the preseason and every day I’m more proud of them for believing in the vision and taking ownership of the club.
I’ve challenged each one of them to write down their goals for the season! It’s so enjoyable to see the pride and love.
The very first one I received said, “I’d like each one of my teammates to learn how to fall in love with the club, to love God first and focus on their education.”
This team is determined to make history!
The season will kickoff this weekend but we have a bye. So next Saturday May 11th will be our first game.”

2019 Young Athletes With Hope Soccer Seaon to Begin!

Young Athletes With Hope was a dream placed on Ephraim’s heart to create a pathway for young men and boys to experience God’s love and to believe in themselves.

In just three short and very busy years, YAWH has grown into a multilayered sports ministry serving rural Haiti. Today, YAWH is a professional level-three division soccer (football) team getting ready to take on their first soccer season! Everyone who has touched this ministry in any way are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support! ❤️

The pictures below capture Ephraim’s father and older brother sitting while his father ( in his late 80’s) speaks into these men’s lives. This is it right here! This is how real change happens, with one wise man leaning into a group of younger men.

Look for updates on YAWH as they wrap up training and head into the 2019 tournaments. All eyes are on this first-ever rural team as they play their way into the spotlight!
So proud of these young men and so happy they are getting this chance! ❤️

Thank you @jesssbarz for signing up for monthly donations!

We need to hit our goal of 9 more people this month to sign up for monthly donations. As little as $10 a month helps fund our youth soccer program/ future trades program dreams! It’s difficult for most to donate $100 at a time. But it just takes a kind soul and generous person to sign up for $10-$20 a month. Please help us hit our goal this month!
