Phase I of the Kay Anj Village (KAV) in Haiti is complete! This new 40 acre sustainable village provides housing, playfields, education and worship buildings for eighty orphans and their caregivers.  Helping Haitian Angels, a 501c3 organization, is developing this site near the small village of Dekle, near Cap Haitien, Haiti to also provide the crucial health and water infrastructure needs for this community.

KAV is designed to have a green infrastructure utilizing solar panels, rainwater harvesting and gray water recycling methods. KAV buildings are based on the latest sustainable technologies while also being adapted to employ local labor services.  Phase II of KAV consists of an administration building and housing for the Director and volunteers, while Phase III is a medical building and an extensive agricultural and livestock area to further support the nourishment of this community.
