Current Projects

As you may know, at the beginning of May 2018 we officially received our non-profit status as an organization, but even without it God has provided in some pretty amazing ways.

We have been able to purchase prime property in the outskirts of Cap Haitien, Haiti (3 miles from the international airport), along with placing a wall around our property (approximately 1 full acre), a front gate, and a cafe at the front property (currently used to house Macdonald and Muselie). The overall cost of all of these was right around $100,000.

Below are our current projects. If you have any questions about any of them, do not hesitate to ask. As you may have already gauged, our desire is to be a fully self-sustaining organization, but we do have these “upfront” costs in order to get the organization off of the ground.

    Fabio and Micka Altime Support
    Donated: $1,500.00
    Fabio and Micka Altime have made the huge faith decision to move back to Haiti in order to help run our Empowered International location in Cap Haitien. Both of them will be investing in the young adults that are a part of our program, and Fabio will be our Business Manager where he will oversee the businesses connected to EI. In July of 2019, Fabio and Micka along with their two young children, Kevin and Newstalyne, will make this transition. Our desire is that within two years the EI businesses will fully sustain the organization, but we know that up front it will take a while for this to be a reality. Therefore, we want to make sure that Fabio and Micka are taken care of financially, including their children being in a quality school, housing, vehicle, food, and other expenses. Therefore, we are asking individuals and families for a 1-2 year monthly commitment to help with these living expenses. Would you be willing to make this commitment? You can use to links below to give your information as well as your commitment. IMPORTANT!! Recurring donations will begin immediately, and any recurring funds brought in prior to their moving in July 2019 will go towards much-needed upfront costs for the Altimes. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Scott Jester at 260-223-3838 or Thanks so much for your support!!
