Children in Haiti struggling with poverty have resulted in dying, being abandoned, orphaned or sold to slavery.

The vision of Open Doorways Orphanage has always been one of bringing dignity and hope for a brighter future to some children.  Giving them the opportunity to become the person they were created to be.

After going public with the vision in 2003, with much work and dedication, the home opened its doors to the first three children in November 2011.

We, the Board of Directors gratefully thank all of our supporters for journeying and partnering with us through generous and kind donations, countless volunteer hours, fundraising efforts, words of encouragement and prayers.  Because of you, our vision is a reality!  These children belong to all of us to care for.

Please continue supporting our project of faith, hope and love.  You can consider a one-time donation, a monthly sponsorship with your choice of amount, a donation "In Memory" of a loved one (or) a gift donation “In Lieu of” where the recipient receives the official tax receipt.

Your donation ensures our family of precious children is being loved and receive the basics of life – nourishment, clean and safe water, clothing, medical care, attend school as well as belong to a local faith community.

Your donation also provides wages for the local folks hired for the daily on-going care of the children as well as the maintenance of the home and yard.

Yvette Mallet, School Director, Ecole Lagimodière, Lorette, Manitoba

On November 2004, Sharon Dugard and myself offered a presentation on Haiti to our grades 7 and 8. This goal was to talk about one of the poorest country in the world and have the students realize the daily challenge that their citizens have to live with. We talked about different aspects including education, population, poor living conditions... It was all very educational for the students who were very interested. Sharon shared her project on building an orphanage for the people entitled "Open Doorways". The students were very touched and once back into class discussed with their teachers of ways they could help and ideas to raise money to support the project. I was very excited because having taught in that country for a month during the summer of 1990, I still feel very close to the people of Haiti.

As a school principal, I think it is very important to teach empathy to our students. Giving them a sense of empowerment shows them that they can make a difference in making this world a better place for every human being.
