The Story of Haiti Marycare

Cultural Programs

In a town with little electricity and no television, music and theater play an important role in fostering a strong and vibrant community and keeping people from migrating to large towns, where there is less support and more risk of becoming victims of violence, abuse, and disease. 

Local choir and band

We support various cultural activities, including three choirs, involving people of all ages, several small bands that use handmade instruments to produce marvelous music, and Niche Timoun (Nest for the Children), a weekly club for child ages four through 12, featuring fun and educational activities, including arts and crafts, skits, songs, and poetry.  To purchase materials for the club, the leaders grind peanuts into peanut butter to sell in the market.
