Bringing Light

The first week of March brought light to Jesus Name Children’s Home.

Jesus Name Children’s Home used a generator for electricity, but only for special occasions. It lacks access to city power sources.

In the beginning of March, a team visited Back2Back Haiti with SonLight Power, located in Cincinnati, Ohio. Together, they installed a solar power system for the home.

“Generous donors are making electricity at the home a possibility,” explains Jeff Hickman, Back2Back Haiti Director. “We are excited about electricity being a regular resource for the home.”

Consistent electricity in the home is providing the power to change each child’s story. Wideline, a girl who dreams of becoming a seamstress, will be able to use her sewing machine at night now. Stanley leans his body sideways in his bed to catch the breeze of a blowing fan. Running fans through the night will cut down on heat in each room, allowing for easier sleep. Music crooning through speakers provide soft music before bedtime; reading fluency will increase as children can read in their rooms. Electricity in the home is much more than light – it’s hope.

Steph Duff is a writer, daughter, sister, and really loud laugher. By day she lends her voice on behalf of orphaned and vulnerable children with Back2Back Ministries. By night she is readily found with her nose in a book and spending time with her dachshund, Addy. At all hours, she can be found consuming copious amounts of coffee. She feels most herself in the heat of India and prefers her mugs big, her books long, and her words intentional.

Hope Changes Everything
