We aren’t all able to hop on a plane and fly across the ocean to visit our team in Haiti, so we brought the Lifesong Haiti team to you. Keep scrolling to take the Haiti Virtual Vision Trip…
Welcome to Lifesong Haiti!
While you’re here, you’ll learn some of the challenges Haiti faces, see the different ways our team reaches vulnerable kids and families, hear testimonies from those we’ve reached, and find out how to get involved!
Don’t have time to take the full trip? Here’s a quick breakdown.
Haiti at a Glance
In the face of these harsh realities, the Lifesong Haiti team has reached over 1,000 orphaned and vulnerable children with holistic care, education, and—most importantly—the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Snapshot of Lifesong Haiti
Our 198 students at Lifesong School range from 7th to 13th grade. Each one receives all necessary learning materials, quality instruction from qualified teachers, medical care, daily meals, and discipleship—all at no cost to them or their families.
God gives every child—including those from incredibly difficult places—talents and blessings to lead the next generation, and the recent exam scores of our 9th-grade students make this evident. 100% passed their National Exams! This is nearly unheard of in Haiti, especially during a school year filled with remote learning and delays.
Lord willing, 26 students will graduate from our school in May—our first-ever graduating class in Haiti!
Family Life Residences
32 of our students live on campus in Family Life Residences. In this family-style environment, young adults have structured spiritual time, academic support, and household responsibilities.
Our prayer is that this environment creates productive, good leaders in society. We want to model a healthy, Christian family unit, showing how spouses interact through service and love—something rarely seen in Haiti.

From creating opportunities for our graduates to providing a steady income to at-risk families, job creation is critical to achieving long-term change in a community.
Between a farm site, boutique, and the Lifesong Guest House, our campus businesses have created 80 jobs for locals in the community.

At the end of 2019, a new medical clinic opened on our campus. The timing couldn’t have been more appropriate, as just a few months later, COVID-19 reached Haiti.
In its first 19 days of operation, the clinic served over 600 patients. And today, it serves an average of 1,000 patients each month.
While the clinic is there to provide physical healing, it’s a blessing to have it on our campus with staff whose priority is to provide spiritual healing.
