EGO TODAY

The Drowley family traveled to EGO for many years to help with construction projects and to care for the children. In 2012, Ken, Marla, Samantha and Max started as full-time missionaries, moving to Haiti to help Don and Doris Peavey manage the orphanage, school, clinic and church. Ken and Marla currently handle the day-to-day operations, as well as guiding the children spiritually, physically, emotionally, and academically. EGO has a new workshop where Ken will teach the children vocational skills, enabling them to find skilled jobs when they are adults.  Drowley's continue to support the community of Dessalines through employment at EGO, and by offering food and baby formula to families in need.

Today, EGO has 14 buildings including a clinic which serves the people of Dessalines. The Tabernacle is where the chuch services and revival meetings are held. It is also used as an activity center for the community, a place for weddings, receptions, rallies and banquets. EGO also runs a school, offering Christian education as well as meals to more than 300 local children.



At the orphanage

EGO has grown over the years to include a dorm for infants and toddlers, a dorm for the girls and one for the boys, a clinic, gardens and livestock, laying chickens and fish tanks for tilapia. EGO also runs a church and school that serve EGO and the community. A woodworking shop and solar-power shed have been the latest projects completed.


Our Church:  Pastor John Pierre leads the church and ministers to the community. He also teaches Bible classes at the school. The Tabernacle is home to a growing congregation from town, and to the children at EGO.


Our Clinic: The medical clinic serves the village of Marchand Dessalines and the many families who live in the mountain areas that surround EGO. Many arrive in desperate conditions, sometimes walking many miles to seek medical attention. Staffed by Haitian Nurses who grew up at EGO, the clinic will typically see 75 to 100 patients on a normal day. Treating everything from malnutrition, burns, disentary, zika and HIV, the day becomes long when the line stretches down the street. Visiting medical teams from other countries help out when in the area.


Our School:  In 2011, the elementary school run by EGO was expanded, adding more classrooms in a larger building constructed across the street from the orphanage. Institution Mixte Peavey ( IMP) has earned its certificates and approvals from the Haitian education department and provides Christian education for children ages 2 to 18.


Vocational Workshop:  The teenagers at EGO learn skilled trades in the workshop. Ken teaches the kids to weld, build cabinets, plumbing and electrical installation, as well as cement work and finishing skills.
