Passion to Serve

Dégagé \dā-gä-zhā\ A Creole word meaning to "make do with what you have"

Dégagé is a well-known mindset in Haiti where people have learned to live with few material goods or modern conveniences. Join us this academic year in giving as a community of Christ to help the people of Cascade Pichon, Haiti, do more than “make do.” Our Passion to Serve Project will fund the building of a school that will provide education to more than 300 Haitian children.

Target Goal: $70,000+
Target Deadline: Friday, May 2, 2014

Every dollar you donate goes toward the funding of a school building in the remote mountains of southeast Haiti. This school will provide immediate education to children K-12. All elements for this school are in place—teachers, curriculum, furnishings—except for the building!

How will we get to our goal?

MNU is partnering with Heart to Heart International in these efforts. Heart to Heart will supervise construction of school. All construction will be completed by local Haitians with assistance of MNU students and students from other Nazarene schools.
