The Dwyer Group Promotes “Light Haiti” Campaign

To Deliver Up to 1,000 Solar Lights to Haitian Village

May 06, 2015 // // WACO, Texas – The Dwyer Group, one of the world’s largest franchising companies of trade service brands, has partnered with New Vision Renewable Energy and Mission Waco Mission World to supply up to 1,000 solar-powered lights to the remote community of Ferrier Nord Est, located in an impoverished section of Haiti.

Through the Light Haiti campaign, The Dwyer Group plans to raise $100,000 for the lights, which will be delivered on a mission trip planned in November.

Very few people in this Haitian community, if any, have access to ongoing electricity. For many local families who are participating in this program, this will give them solar lights that will provide four hours of light a night. They will replace the kerosene-fueled lamps and candles they currently use that are costly and toxic, and replace them with solar power and clean energy to promote healthier communities.

An estimated 800 families of Ferrier Nord Est have already completed 65 hours of community service per family for their solar lights.

“Here at The Dwyer Group, we embrace and live our Code of Values everyday which helps with enriching lives,” said Dina Dwyer-Owens, co-chairwoman of The Dwyer Group. “For The Dwyer Group to be part of this project is something special and we are very proud to partner with New Vision Renewable Energy and Mission Waco Mission World to make the lives of others so much better.”

Light Haiti is one of many projects Mission Waco Mission World has supported. The organization has been working with the Ferrier Nord Est community since 1984, and has helped to establish clean water systems, health and hygiene education, school sponsorships and orphan funds, as well as various other projects.
