Transforming Individual Lives Today invites you to transform the life of an abandoned Haitian “orphan” by supporting nurturing care and rehabilitation provided by Pierre and Natalie Charlotin’s One Gift, One Child NGO, instead of exploitation and (often sexual) servitude in the Haiti “orphanage” industry. Most of the “orphans” are abandoned children of living parents. One Gift, One Child places these children with families and provides parenting support for them.
One Gift, One Child has been asked to purchase the previously abandoned compound they have used since 2017 to serve the most vulnerable children in Saint Marc, Haiti, by the end of 2023. The Charlotins have rebuilt the external walls, added secure gates, installed 24-hour solar power, refurbished the kitchen including a safe water supply, paved the courtyard, and equipped it for child therapy. YWAM, the current owners, ask only US$25,000 for OGOC to secure ownership. With related transaction fees of about US$7,000, OGOC will need about US$32,000 to secure title to their compound.
