Olive Tree Projects (OTP)
Long Business Description

Founded by Sarah Wallace, Olive Tree Projects was created to help children in Haiti. We believe that the best way to achieve this goal is through ‘family preservation’ efforts – a term that has stemmed from a movement to keep children out of institutions.

The environment an orphanage provides cannot replace the family unit and, unfortunately, often causes harm. Children become isolated from the community and do not find the attention and care they need from the limited staff. To learn more about this issue and our philosophy visit www.wearelumos.org

Our goal is to prevent the need for orphanages and keep children in a family. Maternal mortality, unwanted children, and poverty are all reasons why children end up in orphanages. We work towards preventing these issues through 3 different programs:

1. Midwifery Centre

2. Foster Care Program

3. Recycling Depot
