Helping families find stability and a new future. 

When a family has a safe home, they can dream about a new future. Zanmi Fondwa is dedicated to creating stability in Fondwa, Haiti through housing, education and economic development. Our goal is to provide jobs for Haitians by building 40 homes in three years.

For the last 15 years, Founder Jamalyn Peigh Williamson and husband David Williamson have been working in Fondwa—a beautiful, rural, safe, hospitable community full of people they've grown to love. We want to introduce these people and this place to you. And we invite you to consider a next step, whether that's giving financially or taking a trip to see first hand the life-changing work we have committed our lives to do.

Zanmi Fondwa is fortunate to have wonderful partners in ministry like Kirk of Bonnie Brae United Church of Christ in Denver, CO.  David Gebel, an active member, went to Fondwa in 2017 and was touched by the people he met and worked alongside to create hope through new homes.  Sadly, he passed away suddenly last week. His family would like to build a home in Fondwa in David's memory.  We appreciate your contribution towards helping families find stability in Fondwa, Haiti. David will be missed greatly.
