By: Haiti Micah Project
The President's Council on Service and Civic Participation founded the President's Volunteer Service Award in order to recognize the important role of volunteers in America's strength and national identity. In addition, the award honors individuals whose service positively impacts communities in every corner of the nation and inspires those around them to take action.
Reverend Constant, a Haitian-American Episcopal priest, founded the Haiti Micah Project in 2005 as a faith based organization committed to addressing the needs of hundreds of impoverished and uneducated children in Mirebalais, Haiti, a city located in the Central Plateau. The organization provides shelter, food and educational opportunities for impoverished children in Haiti. In its seventeen years of work, the organization has helped hundreds of children lead happier and healthier lives.
In the United States, Reverend Constant's work inspires the charitable efforts of hundreds. "Father Joseph has opened the hearts and minds of American supporters to the plight of third world poverty, and motivated supporters to action," says William Taczak, Vice President of the Haiti Micah Project. "Churches and individuals in all corners of the nation support our work in Haiti."
Reverend Constant will join an illustrious group of recipients that exemplify excellence in their respective areas including: Ambassador Curtis Ward-Chairman, Caribbean Research and Policy Center USA and The Rev. Dr. Jonathan L. Weaver-President and CEO, Pan-African Collective USA,
In response to the award, Reverend Constant said, "It is an honor to be recognized with such other distinguished leaders. The work of Haiti Micah Project is so important for the children of Haiti, but is also incredibly challenging. I am grateful for the commitment of the board of directors and our staff in Haiti for their endless efforts to provide for the children of Haiti."
Reverend Constant will receive the award on Thursday, September 29, 2022 at the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) African and Caribbean International Leadership Conference and Presidential Awards Gala to be held at the National Press Club in Washington, D. C. For more information, please visit https://www.cafblc.com/
