The Land: Future Home of Hope for Today Outreach in Haiti (Corail, Port-Margot): the Hope Outreach Center for Leadership Development and Social Transformation
In this brief video presentation, Dr. Celucien L. Joseph introduces a potential land–about 2 acres–that Hope for Today Outreach is looking to purchase in the town of Corail, Port-Margot. The land will be used to improve the rural education in the region, and to train and equip the next generation of Haitian leaders and entrepreneurs of the town of Port-Margot, and its surrounding areas in the craft and art of carpentry, cosmetology, barber, plumbing, house construction, agriculture, sewing, music, and Christian leadership and ministry. The estimated cost to purchase the land is $ 25, 000.
General overview of Hope Outreach Center:
Hope Outreach Center will house four facilities: Hope Outreach Leadership Development, Hope Outreach Vocational School, Hope Outreach Music Academy, and Hope Outreach Health Center, and five main buildings. While the Center will be located in the rural area of Corail, it will, however, serve the neighboring communities of Petit Bourg and Bayeux, and the ensuing six sections: Corail, Bas-Petit Borgne, Haut Petit Borgne, Bas-Quartier, Bras Gauche, and Grande Plaine.
Students who are enrolled at the Center to pursue a trade, study music, or be equipped in Christian leadership ministry will pay a minimal charge for tuition and school supplies. However, the literary program, which is designed to help improve the alphabetization campaign in the country will be of no charge. The Center will enroll no more than 200 students in an academic year.
The Center will be built on 2 acres of land, and include the following components:
• 4 facilities;
• 5 buildings;
• 20 rooms: 15 classrooms, and 5 guest rooms;
• 6 bathrooms;
• 3 water wells;
• A Community Library;
• A Computer Lab;
• A Community Health Center;
• A Community Pharmacy;
• A Family Counseling and Rehabilitation Center;
• A Community Food Pantry.
The estimated cost to build the five modern buildings, four centers, the library, and the medical clinic is roughly $ 2, 000, 000. Other expenses such as land purchase, the three water wells, and modern classroom equipment, teaching tools and supplies for the teachers, medical supplies, equipment, and pharmaceuticals for the health center, and solar panels and windmill technologies to provide non-interrupted power and electricity to the centers and buildings are not included.

We foresee that such an ambitious educational project is desperately needed in Port-Margot. Foremost, the Hope Outreach Center will help improve rural education in the Region, and the literacy rate among the people. Second, it will help alleviate poverty, prostitution, and reduce child pregnancy. Thirdly, the project will train farmers and enhance agricultural production by applying new techniques and scientific advancement to farming and harvesting crops. Fourthly, it will train creative and socially-active leaders in the community. Finally, this educational project will improve the living condition of the people of Port-Margot and the surrounding areas.
