Rachel’s Mission: Build More Homes in Haiti

Determined to make a difference, Rachel’s new goal is to build 20 additional homes

Rachel's Building Initiative


67 percent of goal achieved.

Rachel Wheeler of Lighthouse Point, Fla., is a little girl with a big heart who at the age of 9 decided she wanted to build a village for families in Haiti – a task many thought was impossible.

With the help of generous donors, such as yourself, the now 14-year-old not only has raised enough money to build 27 two-room homes through Food For The Poor in Leogane, Haiti, but she also raised enough funds to replace the Ecole Reap de Morel basic school that was destroyed during the 2010 earthquake.

“If you have a dream you follow it, and you don’t let anyone stand in your way,” said Rachel, during the inauguration of Ecole Reap de Morel basic school in March 2012.

With land now available, her goal is to build homes for an additional 20 families in Rachel’s Village.

Please continue to donate to Rachel’s initiative, and be the answer to the prayers of families who have nowhere to call home.
