Rev Jean Claude Sylvain
(President)

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Plant the seeds of compassion when you teach a person to fish and you will not only feed them for a lifetime, but they will share this teaching with others.

Rev. Jean Claude Sylvain was only 20 years old when he desired to start a school and open a home for orphans and needy children so that children could have access to education and a better tomorrow. His ambition originated from seeing his mother work as a live-in maid for just $5 a month. When he visited his mother, he had no access to the living room and couldn’t play with the other children, but instead had to stay in a single guest house room built outside the main house where his mother slept at night. He wondered: Why do human beings have to be treated that way?

In 1978, with the help of a minister who let him use a small room in his church, Rev. Sylvain started a school, just charging a small fee. When parents could not afford the small fee, Rev. Sylvain never sent the children home; instead, he would look for volunteer help with the teaching.
Mr Jean Carlos Sylvain
(Vice-President)

God will enrich your life when you make your living about enriching the lives of others.

Jean Sylvain was 13 years old when he was adopted by Rev. Jean Claude Sylvain. Even though he was young at the time, he knew that his adoption was a life-changing event. Growing up in a pastoral environment and having the chance to travel with his dad, Rev. Sylvain, gave him the opportunity to experience first-hand "the gift of giving to others, particularly those in need."

In 1988, Jean Sylvain moved to the United States to study. He is now a registered nurse. In 1996, he married his long-time best friend, Marie Joseph, who attended his father's church. The couple has two beautiful children: Carl and Tayina Sylvain.

Encouraged by his wife’s unconditional love and support, Jean has provided medical assistance to those in needs throughout Haiti. He now serves as the Vice President of Life for Haiti Foundation.
