Because Trinity HOPE hires native Haitians to run the feeding programs at all 247 schools, children have continued to be served even during these difficult times. All 31 Feeding Program Directors travel to their schools twice each month to monitor program compliance and to ensure children are hearing the Word of God and feeling the love of His grace.
Sargine is our first female feeding program director. She started with Trinity HOPE in the spring of 2021, and just celebrated her 1 year anniversary with the ministry. She has been such an amazing asset. From Sargine:
My name is Sargine Bien-Aime. I’m from Les Cayes, the Southern part of Haiti. I’m from a large family of five siblings: One sister and four brothers. My dad [has passed] and I live with my mom Jinolyse, my niece Rose and my nephew Gantt.
I’m an agronomist and I’m working for Trinity Hope organization, which is an international organization that helps Haitian children by providing daily meals in many [Christian] schools in Haiti. My position is a feeding program director. I have to travel twice a month to visit the schools and make sure everything about feeding the students is done well.
This job is very challenging when we consider all the problems that we are facing in Haiti. For example many times we are facing the lock down of some part of the country, which makes it difficult to move from one place to another.
All of these situations makes it uncomfortable, but in any negative situation we can always have a positive part that we truly enjoy. That’s the reason why I can say that job has many positive impacts on me [and] on my family. For example: It gives me the opportunity to help my community, it lets me compare the progress of a school before and after being in the program. Thus it makes me understand how important it is for the kids to be fed when studying. As the old Haitian saying said, ‘[An] empty stomach doesn’t have ears.’ I can say that job [also] makes me economically independent. Which allows me to contribute to the family budget. I enjoy being part of Trinity hope because it always encourages us to serve God, to be honest and to live like a big family.
