About LifePaths Global
LifePaths Global Alliance was founded by Elaine Knight in 2010 in response to the devastating earthquake that overwhelmed Haiti that year. Its mission quickly became one of providing urgent medical and community development assistance to select rural areas of Port au Prince and L’Estere. By providing health, employment and education programs in these rural areas, people would no longer need to seek these opportunities and services outside of their own communities and would be able to return to their homes. Their long term goal is to assist these rural areas in becoming entirely self-sufficient through our community and medical relief projects (such as the telemedicine clinic) that were quickly implemented and continue to operate in these regions.
