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!

SUNDAY MORNING NOTE FROM EPHRAIM ❤️
Here’s an update on Young Athletics With Hope division 3 team!
“Today we finished our first half of the season. Out of 21 possible points, we finished with 15 which puts YAWH in third position. We have 7 more games and we’re confident we’ll end up qualifying for the playoffs as one of the 4 teams. The winner of the 4 team tournament automatically qualifies for second division. Thank you all for your support and continue to keep us in your prayers as we fight to honor God with the talents He has given those young men.” Ephraim
