Bèl Plas - Beautiful Place
Making it a beautiful place!
BÈL PLAS - BEAUTIFUL PLACE
Ncompass’s mission is to serve, develop, and empower today’s youth to become the generation of influencers God created them to be. In Titanyen, Haiti, we have been supporting the Maranatha House Orphanage since 2011. The Maranatha House is home to 22 children, under the age of 18. It also supports the 15 older children who have aged out of the system through the Mentorship and Transitions Program.
COMMUNITY MURAL PROJECTS
The walls surrounding Maranatha House Orphanage have been skim coated and our 1st Mural, painted by the children and their neighbors, depicting the relationship between Titanyen, Haiti and the Pacific Northwest has been completed! The overall feeling is less of an institution and more of a beautiful home filled with love and happiness. But this is only the beginning! With your help, we can continue to instill beauty, accomplishment and personal achievement throughout the Titanyen community and the youth of the Northwest.
Overall goal is for Titanyen to no longer be known as “less than nothing
