KORE Foundation’s “business as ministry” initiatives demonstrate the love of Christ by focusing on steps “beyond relief”, implementing projects that impact immediate needs and empower future generations. Founded by Dennis and Brenda Bratton, KORE offers the Christian poor of Haiti a foothold away from chronic poverty toward a life of self-reliance. KORE is partnered with FISH Ministries to provide long-term solutions to basic human needs, along with business training and funding.
KORE seeks to create opportunities for economic advancement that will build a sense of dignity and ownership. An opportunity to break the cycle of extreme poverty.
The Poultry Project
KORE’s Poultry Project provides a Haitian Christian the necessary training, financing and oversight to begin his/her own small business. The chicken coop provides food and income security for a family. It is a realistic tool for poverty alleviation, both sustainable and expandable
Currently, there are 87 farmers in the Small Holder Poultry program. We have just completed a poultry processing center in Gressier which will provide additional marketing support for our farmers. A complimentary program is The 6.25 Project, a protein intervention initiative. As many as 300,000 children suffer from malnutrition in Haiti. The dangers of malnutrition in early childhood pose a threat to the cognitive and physical development of a child. A portion of the poultry output from our farmers is purchased and donated to areas needing immediate nutrition intervention. These programs allow for improved access to protein for children, additional income potential for our farmers, and boosts expansion opportunities for other areas in Haiti.
Unlike relief dollars that are given, spent and must be replenished, dollars invested in economic development, or “business as ministry”, never stop working.

#GivingTuesday is a national day of giving to help start the Christmas season. Leading up to December 3rd, KORE's #GivingTuesday campaign will provide a platform for you to help us cultivate sustainability in impoverished Haitian communities and help make this season the biggest giving season yet!
We invite you to be part of this celebration and show how the world can do much more with our wallets than just consume. We have a big goal! We want to add 1,000 kids to our protein intervention feeding program. For $6.25 a month, a child will receive animal protein in addition to their typical beans and rice diet. $75 will feed a child for an entire year! Consider letting this be your Christmas gift to your friends and families! We will send them a Christmas card with a photo of a child participating in our 6.25 Campaign.
