Faith in Action International’s newest organizing project, Organisation Peuple Œcuménique pour le Developpment du Nord-Est (OPODNE), was formally launched in August 2014 by 100 leaders from across Northeast Haiti who approved their constitution, elected officers, and pledged to put their faith in action to improve the quality of life for the many families facing poverty and marginalization.

Leaders gather weekly to tackle issues fundamental to the survival of their children and families. Communities are organizing their labor for basic sanitation, establishing computer training centers for youth, building roads to get their crops to market, and forming cooperatives to establish a source of income.
