Wheaton Academy will be partnering with World Orphans throughout the school year to help support over 20 orphans in Haiti. World Orphans will connect Wheaton Academy with a thriving local church in Haiti who is responsible for meeting the needs of these young children. During this trip we will meet these orphans and the church partnership that we will be working with throughout the entire year. It is our desire that our fundraising efforts throughout the year are connected to a relationship and this trip will fulfill that vision.
