Orphan Care

"God sets the lonely in families," Psalm 68:6

It is estimated that there are over 350,000 children without parents in Haiti. We believe that every child is created in the image of God, and every child deserves to know they are uniquely loved and valued. Family is more than blood and here at EGO we are truly a family.

EGO believes the Bible, which says that God has created all human beings, and each has value and purpose. Don and Doris have exemplified Jesus’ words to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. And love your neighbor as yourself.” (Mark 12:30-31) The Peavey's have raised more than a hundred children throughout their 46 years in Dessalines, Haiti, and now Ken & Marla Drowley continue their work! Every baby and child who is under EGO’s care receives spiritual, nutritional, emotional, and physical care from the staff at Ebenezer Glenn Orphanage, as well as an education from EGO’s school. The children are taught trade and domestic skills, child-rearing and relational abilities, and Biblical Christian values. EGO equips each child to enter adulthood and to serve their community with Christ’s love.

LOVE CHANGES LIVES.

WHAT WE DO

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

To provide for the physical, emotional, and educational needs of the orphans and other children entrusted to our care. It is a priority to provide and promote spiritual growth for each child in a Christ centered environment.

"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love." 

1 John 4:7-8

Our Ministries

We believe that sharing the gospel of Christ requires both words and action. We are dedicated to ministering to the people of Haiti in ways that are applicable to their physical and spiritual needs. 

ORPHAN CARE

EGO is the family home of 71 children who have been permanently placed with us by Haitian Social Services because of deceased family members, parental abuse, neglect, and special medical needs. 

Clinic

The Haitian government asked Doris Peavey to use her medical training to open a public clinic in 1973. Since that time the EGO clinic has provided medical care to an estimated 300,000 people, and continues to see new patients each week. 

School

The Institution Mixte Peavey, is run by local leadership, who grew up at EGO, and provides a Christian based quality education to the EGO kids, as well as over 300 children from the surrounding neighborhoods. 

Future Family Unit Care

We are redesigning our current system of care to reflect a more family-like setting, closer to what we feel God’s design for family is. As soon as we finish building the new family unit homes, we will move our kids out of their group dorms and into foster families. 

Church

The Tabernacle, built by and located on EGO grounds, is under local leadership and provides spiritual nourishment and discipleship training to the community of Dessalines. 

Sponsorship

Through sponsorship, our EGO kids receive shelter, safety, education, healthcare, spiritual development, and the hope for a future. We also have formula and school tuition programs to encourage family preservation for families in the region.
