National and International Organizations and Opportunities

Global Women

Global Women is an ecumenical missions movement that envisions a world where every woman is empowered by the love of God, valued by her community, and equipped to fulfill her unique purpose. The ministry is involved in Christian women’s leadership, preventing human trafficking and restoring victims, micro-enterprise, and health and social services.

Share the Light

In order to build long term change in the lives of the people Share the Light (STL) interacts with the Haitian people on a regular basis.  They believe in equipping the Haitian people with all the necessary skills and basic life needs for them to move their lives forward.  It is crucial that STL see themselves as one piece of a long journey for each life they touch. This is why their mission is about long-term self-sufficient life. This looks different for every person they interact, which is why they strive to meet basic needs and move to lasting connections within communities.  Founders, David and Jennifer Reece are the caretakers of this ministry.  For more info, go to: www.sharethelightminstry.org
