‘For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Interview Recap, in Haitian-Creole
Disclaimer: Sparks with Bold Purpose, previously known as Sparks with Purpose
Our Mission:To bridge the generational gap within the Haitian Diaspora through civic engagement and mentor-ship.
Core Values:We want to ensure continued and committed social justice advocacy and service to the Haitian community. We thrive on creating opportunities for individuals, families, and communities of color; to feel empowered and have what they need to succeed.
Giving Back with Bold Purpose
Our purpose is to find a balance between the mindset of collective duty and individualistic responsibility that often weighs in the Haitian Diaspora. We understand that first-generation Haitians are usually inundated with carrying their parents and their extended families. We seek to lighten that load by providing resources that are accessible to every member in a way they can understand and use independently. We aim to educate and equip our vibrant community through civic engagement, mentorship, and addressing racial and social justice issues.
