Haiti Kids Now is a grassroots ministry dedicated to raising awareness and support for homeless children. It is a non-profit organization created to bring assistance to hungry children in need around the world. We are currently focused on Haiti. The Haiti Kids Now ministry has supported efforts to get Haiti’s homeless children off the streets since 2009.
We work with adult former street children who now run their own orphanages. They are dedicated to ending childhood homelessness, because they lived through it themselves. They and their children are shown in our films and on our website. Please click here for latest updates on the children.
With this, we hope to change the current situation with the street and slave children in Haiti and to give the children a chance to be children. We serve all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender. We believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and that Jesus Christ is the Lord and the Savior of mankind.
Leapfrog Productions brings you a stunning film directed by Young Man Kang about the street kids of Haiti. This extraordinary human saga that spans 10 years starts with the story of a young man named Wilner St. Fort and his fellow street kids growing up in Port-Au-Prince.
