"The oven is the engine…"

Sister Katherine "Sissy" Corr at the Notre Dame Boulangerie
in La Savane, Haiti

Sister Katherine ‘Sissy’ Corr makes things happen.

When the people of La Savane, Haiti said they needed jobs, she built a bakery. She built it with the help of Haitians every step of the way, but still she built it. Without her ‘Sister-power’ as the Haitians call it, the bakery would still be only a dream.

And when a hurricane roared through, knocking down what was built, she built anew. She built so that today Notre Dame Boulangerie is turning out 1,700 loaves of bread morning to night, is employing 18 bakers, is employing 35 sellers, and is set to grow even more.

But while the oven is the engine, the fuel is the initiative of the bakers and sellers.

But in all these things, they need your financial support. Just as with the oven in Haiti, it often only takes seed money, an initial investment, a helping hand—to change the trajectory of so many lives.
