We strengthen families
We offer a variety of services to struggling families in order for them to stay together. We operate daycare centres for single mothers, community scholarship programmes, healthcare clinics, and even run our own paediatric hospital in Haiti. Our OneFamily programme ensures that we can successfully reintegrate children with their biological family.
We offer a family for life
When children do not have family who they can live with, NPH steps in to provide a family for life. This provides a sense of stability and security allowing each child to reach their full potential, no matter their circumstances.
Brothers and sisters stay together
When a family breaks down it can be very traumatic for the children. At NPH we try to keep siblings together, as this strengthen family bonds, providing a sense of security and belonging.
We break the cycle of poverty
We offer education from preschool through to university or vocational training. We provide appropriate education and work experience so that our children can grow into confident and independent adults. Many of our ex-alumni go on to lead happy, successful lives, providing for their families and becoming leaders in their communities.
Our children become caring adults
NPH was founded by Father William Wasson who instilled the Catholic faith in all that we do. Service is at the heart of what we do. We raise children who understand the importance of serving each other, their families and communities.
Most people in Latin America practise Christianity, with the major domination being Catholicism. At NPH we practise the Catholic faith, while respecting the differences within our community. For example, we give support to children and families of any faith. Also, we welcome staff, volunteers and supporters from different faith backgrounds.
