Statement of Purpose

Root Causes of Hunger in Haiti: Grassroots Organizations of Haiti and their Strategies for

Moving to God’s Promise for Abundance

We of North Decatur Presbyterian Church are traveling to Haiti as a mission

group to tryto determine, firsthand, the situation of the Haitian people as they struggle to resolve the persistent problem of hunger in their society.

We recognize the distinct value of local grassroots efforts in finding long-term,

effective solutions and we hope that through this fact-finding mission to learn

ways in which we can help to strengthen these organizations and fulfill God’s

command to love one another.

We also are keenly aware of the related problems of clean water, adequate healthcare, and basic education.

We hope to return home having learned from our Haitian brothers and

sisters how to be able to tell, not only the story of the difficulties of life in Haiti,

but of the strength and resolve of the Haitian people and to know better what

they may need from us and what we might be able to do in response.
