Together We Can – Haiti (TWCH) has been around since 2010 but was officially started in 2012. TWCH is a branch of the non-profit organization Together We Can, Inc. based in Raleigh, NC.
Our goal at TWCH is laid out in our vision and philosophy. We want to create partnerships with local Haitians to be able to continue the work that we have started. We don’t believe that coming into this country and starting something that fully depends on us is an effective way to do ministry. By partnering with local leaders, we can train them to duplicate what they have learned which allows us to get the gospel into the hands of many more people than we would be able to by ourselves. Christ is the most important thing for everyone in every country. We believe as long as we keep that as the cornerstone of our ministry that we will be successful.
TWCH works through many different programs. These are a few examples of the way we do ministry.
Orphan Care: The Bible clearly tells us to take care of orphans. We have created The Agape House to meet this need. As of September 2014, The Agape House was housing 17 orphaned or abandoned children. We feel called to provide a Christ-centered loving environment for these children to thrive and grow in. For more information about The Agape House, visit the link at the top of the page.
Pastoral/Discipleship Training : Our primary goal for being in Haiti is to advance the Gospel. We feel that one of the best ways to accomplish this goal is through training local pastors. Many of whom have had no training at all. Many churches in the remote area that we live in have no pastor at all. Although we would love to establish something permanent in the future, we take every opportunity we can to put on biblical training seminars in some form, wether that be VBS, youth outreach, marital seminars or pastoral training classes when we have pastors or leaders willing to come teach and train.
Agriculture Programs – Farms: We had always had a desire to work in the sector of agriculture. We have had small gardens and large scale gardens, including 3000+ chickens and other livestock. Our current property consists of 35+ acres in a remote mountaintop village. We are working to develop it so that the ministry can be as self sustaining as possible.
Medical Clinics: Medical care is something that is definitely lacking and poorly done in Haiti. We have groups of doctors and nurses that join us on week long trips and do clinic at our property in Delice. In 2016, we held our first major clinic at the property and treated over 1400 people in just 4 days. We are always looking for medical teams. Please let us know if you are interested.
