Espwa means “hope” in Creole, the native language of Haiti. This idea of hope has been a general theme and desire for both citizens and aid workers who are joining together to rebuild Haiti after January’s disastrous earthquake.
From this shared goal has formed the Espwa Project, a labor of love and an endeavor to bring hope to Haiti by wearing it. When you give to The Salvation Army’s Espwa Project, a way to support our ongoing relief efforts in Haiti, you will receive a specially designed t-shirt with a message of hope.
As the Espwa website points out, “Hope, like laughter, is contagious. Each time you wear your [espwa] t-shirt, you spread its message of hope.”
