Change a Child's World for GoodEvery sunrise is an invitation for us to arise and brighten someone's day
The children in Haiti suffer and often die before the age of 5 from preventable causes such as malnutrition and water-borne diseases. You can help change this statistic and reality by gifting basic life essentials to a child in need including food, water, healthcare and more.
For as little as $30.00 per month, you can make a difference in the life of a child. Being part of the sponsorship program provides a child with food, water, correspondence between you and the child, extra fun activities for the child and hope for a brighter future!
Ways To Help
Donations are wonderful but we understand that it is not financially feasible for everyone. If you want to help, there are many ways to do so.
Love and Grace Ministry receives missionaries from the United States, Canada, Peru, Brazil, Italy and other countries who share their time, talents, and treasures with the children of Ouanaminthe, Haiti. Learn more about missionary visits.
Also, prayer warriors are needed to cover our missionaries and all those we serve in prayer. Become a prayer warrior.
And finally, donating your birthday is a great way to help others while keeping your budget intact. Donate your birthday today!
Our TeamWe invite you to join us as we grow and fill the world with love and grace
Pastor Augusto Chavez
Augusto Chavez is the glue of this ministry. He has 16 years experience in Haiti as leader and missionary having built numerous churches and schools. He preaches at churches and in the streets as well as ministering to the children while they are at school. Augusto is the financial administrator, constantly crunching numbers doing his part to make your dollars stretch for the multitudes. Augusto takes care of the student enrollment as well as hiring the teachers. He manages the team of 26 teachers and 13 volunteers and oversees all construction projects as God gives him the visions. Augusto carries the weight of the world on his shoulders but does so with much love and grace!
Dedra Key de Chavez
Dedra Key de Chavez works in the details. She oversees the sponsored children program, ensuring their benefits are delivered as well as sending updates and correspondences to sponsors. Dedra coordinates the diet for the children. She also nurses children and neighbors back to health and takes them to the local clinic when their needs are greater than she can handle. Dedra teaches Bible stories at the schools and other classes in the community. She is in charge of clothing and other donations we receive. Dedra has overseen the building of new homes for two families in need. She works alongside her husband, Augusto, in all areas and things God lays on their hearts.
Teachers and Volunteers
Our team of 26 teachers is the heart of our ministry. Our teachers are our greatest asset and vital to our children's education and hope for a brighter future. In addition, we have a team of 13 men and women that perform the grunt labor behind the scenes. Some work relentlessly cooking for our 575 children as well as street kids. Two men act as our "runners" and drive Augusto and Dedra everywhere on their motos as well as deliver food and water from the main school to the four satellite schools. Other volunteers work serving food, washing dishes, helping with sponsored children activities, construction, fetching water, keeping our schools clean and our missionaries and founders safe.

WHAT Our Supporters Say
We were welcomed by a sea of the most beautiful children I'd ever seen. They sang to us, gave us gifts, and welcomed us with the love of Christ. It was amazing!
Laurel North Georgia
My heart did break with some of the sadness we encountered but more importantly it swelled. I saw children’s smiles that were contagious and I met Haitian friends who’s spirit and faith were like none other I had met.
We were greeted by the children every day: big smiles, hugs, crawling into our laps. When we arrived with food, they were thankful, singing hymns of thanks to us and to God.
