Making a Difference
One Life at a Time.
We help children through fundraising and volunteer efforts that support Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos. NPH is committed to assuring the best possible care for those children through direct programs, through service to other caregivers and support organizations.
In 1987, Father William Wasson founded Nos Petits Frères et Sœurs (NPFS), French for "Our Little Brothers and Sisters," a home for orphaned and abandoned children in Kenscoff, Haiti and since then it has been the permanent home for orphaned and abandoned children from age 5 to young adults.
In order to further our charitable purposes, Friends of the Orphans Canada (FOTOCAN) carries out programs and activities intended to provide homes in which orphaned and abandoned children receive food, clothing, health care and education in a family environment based on the principles of unconditional acceptance and love, sharing, work and responsibility.
Statistics speak for themselves
The Republic of Haiti is a Caribbean country. It occupies the western, smaller portion of the island of Hispaniola, in the Greater Antillean archipelago, which it shares with the Dominican Republic. Haitian, Creole and French are the official languages. Haiti achieved independence from France at the same time as France had its revolution. It was the first Carribean Nation to be free from Colonialism.
The country has yet to recover from decades of brutal dictatorship and exploitation as well as the 2010 earthquake and subsequent cholera outbreaks.
The NPH home in Haiti is located in Kenscoff, 6000ft above Port au Prince, about two hours drive from the airport. Saint Hélène is home to over 350 children from age 5 to secondary level students. The children attend elementary and secondary schools on the premises along with 450 children who live within walking distance.
