How We Started

Living Hope Haiti Christian Mission was founded in 2002 by Rev Dr Gueillant Dorcinvil and Calvin Babcock. They started by building a Christian Elementary School - Mary Babcock Elementary - on six acres of land donated by Gueillant's father, Celiphene Dorcinvil. The location of this school, and the headquarters of the mission, is four miles northwest of St Michel de Attalaye in Northern Haiti.


The mission has grown over the years to include 5 schools, 4 churches, an orphanage, a guest house, a medical clinic, a visiting surgical program, and a variety of other programs.
