The Sisters of the Companions of Jesus are our hardworking partners in Haiti who manage all MHI projects. Under the leadership of Sr. Alta Emile, the Sisters are in charge of Annunciation Leogane primary school, the College Couer de Marie/Heart of Mary secondary school, the Village of Jesus elder care home, and Bethleem Farm. Several sisters teach at the schools, provide care at the Village, and/or work on the farm. Some are in training for agronomy, nursing, and teaching. Their tireless dedication in working toward a more prosperous Haiti is inspiring.
Sisters from the U.S. and Canadian Federations adopted a proposal, Rebuilding Haiti through the Empowerment of Girls, to raise money over a ten-year period to provide education for ten girls from primary school through higher education/technical school, to assist in teacher salaries and tuition for teacher certification, and to provide assistance for the College Coeur de Marie/Heart of Mary secondary school. In addition to the Federation support, the Sisters have provided grants to support several projects, sponsorships, and emergency responses.
The Federation of the Sisters of St. Joseph is a union of all the Sisters who claim a common origin in foundation at Le Puy, France in 1650. In the United States, this includes 4,684 sisters, 2,979 associates and 25 agregees in 16 Congregations.
