New Roof, New Year
Our roof-raising project was completed in time for our New Year’s Day Celebration and Party on January 1, 2017! We could not have achieved this milestone without your support. We are thankful for all of the donors that make our infrastructure projects their priority.
The dining area is not only where our boys eat but it is also our community space where we gather for movie nights, chess tournaments, and mass. Most importantly, it is our study space – keeping it dry and structurally sound can’t be underestimated.
Along with our roof, we were also able to raise the front gate to help keep water out of the campus during the rainy season. The next time you drive up – our gate will open smoothly – in fact, Jean Louis says even Oday can push it!
2017 marks the 15th year of the Maison Fortune Orphanage Foundation (MFOF) supporting the Maison Fortune Orphanage (MFO). What started out with the need, expressed by our founder Jean Louis, to move 30 kids from a one-room house into a larger facility has grown to two campuses and a primary school touching the lives of 400 children and young adults daily. As our children have aged the needs have adapted over time.
These projects are just the beginning of what we have in store for 2017 – as we take care of our kids, we also need to take care of the facilities that keep them safe and sheltered. We also would love to hear from you if you know of an organization working on job creation or vocational training let them know about us – its takes a community.
Together, the next 15 years will be our best!
