Rebuild Haiti-

Haiti is an impoverished country, one of the world's poorest and least developed. Comparative social and economic indicators show Haiti falling behind other low-income developing countries (particularly in the western hemisphere) since the 1980s.

Haiti now ranks 149th of 182 countries in the United Nations Human Development Index (2006).


Most Haitians live on $2 or less per day. Haiti has 50% illiteracy, and over 80% of college graduates from Haiti have emigrated, mostly to the United States.

On January 12, 2010, at 21:53 UTC, (4:53 pm local time) Haiti was struck by a magnitude-7.0 earthquake, the country's most severe earthquake in over 200 years. The epicenter of the quake was just outside the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince.
The epicenter of the quake was just outside the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince. On 10 February the Haitian government gave a confirmed death toll of 230,000. Widespread damage resulted from the quake. The capital city was devastated.


Haiti will need to be completely rebuilt from the ground up, according to a journalist, as "even in good times, Haiti is an economic wreck, balancing precariously on the razor's edge of calamity."

United Caribbean Trust (UCT) has been working in Haiti over the last four years Jenny Tryhane the Founder was in Haiti during the earthquake and remained there for three months to give assistance and distribute items donated by the Barbadian public and is perfectly positioned to assist with the rebuilding of Haiti.

UCT has identified land in the St Marc area for a Building Pilot Project.

Special Treasures Foundation is the Haitian arm of United Caribbean Trust a Barbadian charitable Organisation we are delighted to announce a new program called Homes of Hope Caribbean.

We seek to put God’s love into action, bringing people together to build homes and communities of hope.

Together with local Community partner and grassroots organizations Homes of Hope Caribbean desires to build houses for the poorest people in Haiti whose homes have been distroyed in the earthquake and now the most recent hurricane Matthew..

Earthquake resistant:

Laboratory tests carried out showed that the structure withstands, with no damages, strains greater than those calculated for a First Class Earthquake, that is the maximum provided for by the Italian Earthquake regulation. CLICK to learn more about the Haitian project.

Solar lighting

UCT will be researching the possibility of solar lighting for these homes identifying companies that are already bringing relief to Haiti such as Sol Inc.

Since 1990 Sol, Inc. has manufactured solar powered and LED outdoor lighting solutions for commercial and institutional clients in 61 countries on six continents. As the creator of the solar lighting industry, Sol Inc knows how to create your SOLution.

Our Mission

Energy is a Human Right

The mission of the Solar Electric Light Fund (SELF) is to provide solar power and wireless communications to a quarter of the world’s population living in energy poverty.

SELF believes that energy is a human right. To meet global challenges such as food and water scarcity, climate change and poverty, SELF is working to assign greater priority to the importance of sustainable energy among international development banks, aid agencies, foundations, and philanthropic individuals, who are committed to improving the health, education, and economic prospects of the world's poorest citizens.

Composting Toilets

Pour-flush pit latrines overcome the problems of flies, mosquitoes and odour by having a pan with a water seal (a U-shaped conduit partly filled with water) in the defecation hole. Excreta deposited in the latrine pan is flushed by pouring 2 to 3 litres of water into it. Water remains in the U-shaped conduit blocking air flow and odour. The mixture is directed into a pit and organic wastes are biodegraded. Sludge has to be regularly emptied from the pit. The use of two adjoining pits alternately enables the sludge in a full pit to undergo further decomposition while the other pit is being used, and enables manual sludge emptying after further sludge decomposition. More water percolates through the soil surrounding the pit, and the potential for groundwater pollution is higher. A pour flush toilet with a pit is therefore not suitable when groundwater table is close to the surface

Play Pumps

While children have fun spinning on the PlayPump merry-go-round (1), clean water is pumped (2) from underground (3) into a 2,500-liter tank (4), standing seven meters above the ground.

A simple tap (5) makes it easy for adults and children to draw water. Excess water is diverted from the storage tank back down into the borehole (6).

The water storage tank (7) provides a rare opportunity to advertise in outlaying communities. All four sides of the tank are leased as billboards, with two sides for consumer advertising and the other two sides for health and educational messages. The revenue generated by this unique model pays for pump maintenance.

The design of the PlayPump water system makes it highly effective, easy to operate and very economical, keeping costs and maintenance to an absolute minimum.

Capable of producing up to 1,400 liters of water per hour at 16 rpm from a depth of 40 meters, it is effective up to a depth of 100 meters.

In 2007, the Water For People World Water Corps® completed a study to determine in which new countries Water For People would work. The Dominican Republic had immense need for Water For People’s involvement and was chosen for a new country program.

United Caribbean Trust (UCT) will be the sole beneficiary from a Caribbean commercial venture being launched by United Caribbean Services Inc. (UNSI) and off shore company registered in Barbados where the Head Office and Administrative center will be located.

Profits from UNSI will be channeled into UCT to enable the Trust to establish a humanitarian complex including a Child Care Center featuring a school/clinic/mission house/sanctuary plus numerous Child Care Homes and a Women's Empowerment Center.

Seen here and below the Child Care Center.

This plan was originally conceptualized for Africa by Rev. Ramona Eastmond from Set the Captives Free and were been drawn by Liz Quintyne Inc.

We are believing God to utilize this system in Haiti.

Nestled around the Child Care Center will be the Child Care Homes. Housing 12 orphans and a house parent in each unit.

This four bedroom two bathroom home will offer comfortable earthquake and hurricane resistant housing for these children.

Communal cooking will take place in the Child Care Center but a small kitchen will be equipped to service basic needs for the family.

These house plans are being priced through each of the four manufacturing companies already mentioned and site plans and business plans are already being looked into.

A Haitian team is already in place and venture capital, Praise God has been invested into UCSI to assist with the subdivision and resurveying plus the cost of the site plan, business plan and basic infrastructure. Once these are all ready UCSI will be seeking funding to erect the Child Care Center and one Child Care Home on the 5 acres segregated for this purpose.

The Child Care Center will be used initially as a Mission House to house 12 missionaries comfortable. UCT will be promoting these Mission Trips throughout the Caribbean, America and England to assist with the building process. The Haitian team will lay the foundations and the missionaries will assist with the building.

This will be a great Mission Holiday because a team of 12 can erect one of these houses in less that a week. What a wonderful achievement. Praise God.
