July Trip Report 2014

Ann Brophy’s Reflection
As current chair person of the Haiti Project, I “tagged along” with the St Mary’s group with the primary objective of getting to know Pere Leonard, and to review budget needs, hopes, and realities. It was important for me to see first hand both the progress and problems since my last visit 2 years ago. It was very clear to me that there is great gratitude to the Haiti Project for our continued commitment in partnering with this remote community. Read report -->

We distributed old kindergarten photos - this kid's reaction says it all.

Mark Bronner's Reflection

I have felt God calling me to Haiti since the early 1990’s. Twice I tried to attend a Jeannette trip only to be thwarted by the ever-changing Haitian government. Our family loves attending the Strawberry Fest at St. Mary’s. Each time I’d view the literature and artifacts I’d be reminded of my love for the poorest country in the western hemisphere.

January Trip Report 2014

January 25- 30, 2014 Medical - Dental Trip

Join us on a Trip?

The Diocese of Milwaukee Haiti Project has had a 26 year partnership with the parish of St. Marc’s in Jeannette, Haiti. During this time many people have traveled on mission trips to build relationships, provide medical care, teach needed skills, repair infrastructure, and more.

Are you called to do the same? Are you called to be present, with our brothers and sisters in Haiti, and we grow together in the body of Christ?

Haitian Mountain Blue Coffee

Singing Rooster's Mountain Bleu roast is rich & SMOOTH; cool nights at high altitudes produce gentle & FLAVORFUL coffees!

Mountain Bleu comes from the same type of coffee plant & is grown in a similar region as the wildly successful Jamaican Blue Mountain bean - but at a fraction of the price. Mountain Bleu sells for ONLY $9.50 (12oz bag) – a DEAL compared to Jamaican Blue which sells for $49.99 lb.

Fall, 2012 Haitian Coffee Update

Haitian Coffee : Singing Rooster

The Haiti Project sells delicious Haitian coffee called Singing Rooster -- named after Bishop's Steven Miller's favorite alarm clock in Jeannette: Big Red - whose wake-up calls began at 1:58 am, then 2:45, 3:17... you get the picture (true story)

In 3 years, we've raised OVER $25,000 JUST by selling this coffee -- we use it parish wide during fellowship hour and hold coffee sales at church.

Purchasing Singing Rooster coffee supports Haitian farmers including those living in Jeanette – beans come from grower cooperatives. 100% of proceeds go BACK to Haiti for economic sustainability programs like coffee agriculture.

Using coffee as a means to support our brothers and sisters in Haiti is a win-win:  Haitian farmers win immediately when we purchase their green beans at much, much higher than fair trade prices (Singing Rooster paid over $4 per pound at the 2012 harvest -- fair trade prices are under  $3.10). 

Singing Rooster meets and then exceeds principles of Fair Trade.

Drink Singing Rooster Haitian coffee, support an economy. Pass it on.

Our Mission The Haiti Project is an Outreach Ministry of the Episcopal Dioceses of Milwaukee. We work in partnership with others from all walks of life who share the belief that education, clean water, access to medicine, and compassion are basic human necessities.

Ending poverty in Haiti is multifaceted, and we take our role of stewardship seriously. That’s why more than 90% of our expenses are used for programs that directly affect the people living in Haiti - especially the small and mountainous community of Jeannette. 100% of our funding comes from private sources, including individuals, churches, corporations and grants.
Our collective goal is to promote self-sufficiency and independence.

Join us. Let us know you're interested.
