At Project Rouj, it all starts with a home, a safe and secure place to live, the foundation upon which Haitians can build a better future for themselves. Give today and imagine the transformation you will create.


Giving Options


Annual or One-Time Donation

Project Rouj is a non-profit that exists to improve and transform the future of Haitian families, one home at a time. We don’t give houses to Haitians. That wouldn’t break the cycle of poverty, and it’s not what they want, anyway.

We hire local workers and pay them living wages to build homes, thereby creating jobs and affordable housing in the same stroke. That’s how the cycle of poverty becomes the cycle of renewal.

You’ll know our work from our iconic red roofs.


Become a Monthly Donor

Project Rouj invites you to join the “Raise the Roof Monthly Giving Club.” Club members connect with Fondwa families by assisting Project Rouj with the pursuit of improving and transform the future of Haitian families.  With your monthly donation, you will keep families safe in a new home and help us to employ nearly 90 Haitian workers. Raise the Roof club members will receive quarterly updates via Zoom from Director of Operations Luckner Raymond, hear from homeowners whose lives have been transformed, and receive correspondence from CEO Jamalyn Peigh Williamson.

Sponsor a House

Project Rouj’s strategy is based on building high-quality, long-lasting homes that will create family stability for generations to come. We build houses with modern kitchens replacing dirt floors and tin walls, we build houses with indoor plumbing instead of outhouses. Our homes are made of concrete designed to withstand natural disasters, and we surround our homes with trees that bear fruit to sustain families and create income.

We completed our first house in February 2019, with an initial goal to build 40 homes by 2021. Our vision beyond 2021, is to build 20 houses per year.  We have added a reforestation initiative and home water projects to continue our desire to improve the future of Haitian families.

Project Rouj is supported 100% by donations from individuals, churches, corporations, and special grants.

At Project Rouj, it all starts with a home, a safe and secure place to live, the foundation upon which Haitians can build a better future for themselves. Project Rouj exists to improve and transform the future of Haitian families – one home at a time.
