Why I am Here

Why am I here? This question has been asked of me over and over again. By my family, my friends, my colleagues, and even myself. The answer is in the eyes of all the children you've met through my blog, and the hundreds that you will never see.

I am here to teach English. I am here to help the Artisans. I am here to raise money for the Project. I am here for the children.

Whether my mission is completed in a day, a year, two years, or never- I am here. I am here and I am giving myself to Southern Haiti with all of my heart and soul.


  1. It takes a special person to do what you do. You are an inspiration to all of us. I only can hope that each and every one of us will some day be able to know that we have touched a life, you Paige have touched so many. I am truly in awe. Love ya- Katee

  2. Thank you, Katee. I love you too, and you don't know how I take comments like those and hold them close to my heart- especially as I am here. I miss you. Love you.

  5. Paige, I think what are doing with the kids in les cayes, Haiti is wonderful. Kids these days need a role model to look up to and someone to talk to. u know what I'm saying.I am related to Nancy. she works in the project. She is my big sis and I look up to her.I was born in Haiti(proud) and I know what it's like. keep doing what you're doing. May God Bless you.
    peace out

  6. Kattie O.- Thank you. It is so nice to hear from you. Thank you for posting. I just love Nancy, and can already tell I would love you too. It is really great to be here; I oftentimes wish your country was my own. Take care!
