The Libere Initiative represents the relief efforts of our partnering churches to orphans and vulnerable children in Haiti. Each partnering church has an orphan school that seeks to meet the immediate and most fundamental needs of these children, including food security, clean water, and medicine. You can support this effort by sponsoring a full-time teacher at one of the orphan schools for $125.00 a month.
Libere is the Creole word for “liberate.” We call our relief efforts “Libere” because the work local churches are doing with these children is literally setting them free from a life of poverty and even worse indentured servitude. When parents are no longer able to care for their own children in the most basic way, the children are given over either to a host family in the community where they can have a chance to survive. However, that child is stripped of any opportunity of education and treated like a slave to the community. They are not loved or cared for by adults who are committed to teaching and training them. Rather, they are assimilated into a labor pool of young children who work night and day simply to survive.
What our Haitian churches are doing is taking these vulnerable children (in addition to legal orphans) and providing an alternative life where they can live as children, receive quality education, benefit from nutritious food and clean water, and most important know and experience the love of Jesus Christ by adults who will love them as their own. This initiative is called Libere because we are working to set the captive children free with a hope and future as bright as the promises of God.

Gospel Systems is a nonprofit organization that exists to create and perpetuate healthy delivery systems for the advancement of the gospel of Jesus Christ around the world. Each delivery system serves the mission of the church as laid out by Jesus Christ. This mission is to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20).
