Some of the responses have been edited for brevity and clarity.

How long have you worked for LiveBeyond? Since 2013.

What is your job at LiveBeyond? I started my job by working at LiveBeyond’s chicken coop, but now, I make jewelry and clean the medical clinic.

What is your favorite part about working for LiveBeyond? I love Kè Pou Timoun and what I do here [at LiveBeyond] every day.

Have any of LiveBeyond’s programs improved your life? Yes, I was baptized and married at the LiveBeyond church. I believed in Jesus before, but wasn’t active in my faith.

I was a part of LiveBeyond’s maternal health program through my last pregnancy, and my baby girl is healthy. My son, Jean Roodler, is in Kè Pou Timoun. It’s a very good thing that they pay for his school, so he learns different things.

How has your job transformed your life? I feel proud and great about working for LiveBeyond. I love learning how to make jewelry.

What are you looking forward to in the future at LiveBeyond? I am hoping that the LiveBeyond church and school will be built soon. I am excited to know that my young girls will get to be a part of Kè Pou Timoun someday.

Anything else that you’d like to share? I want to thank everyone that goes and comes to LiveBeyond. I am thankful for people that helped start Kè Pou Timoun—For all of the people that go back and come to see the kids. It makes me so happy.
