Our Team

KEY PEOPLE IN THE ORGANIZATION

We are a team of dedicated individuals seeking to positively impact the suffering children of Haiti — one child at a time. Today’s Promises Academy is not just an orphanage but also a place where children will learn self-help and essential life skills to become responsible, self-sufficient adults. We are empowering tomorrow’s generation and helping the children of Haiti rewrite their life stories from one of despair to one of joy and success. We are offering Today’s Promises for a brighter future tomorrow.
