Inspired by a sustainable education model developed by a grassroots organization in a remote area of Haiti.
The partner school strategy was inspired by a sustainable education model developed by a grassroots organization in a remote area of Haiti. We select schools with strong leadership but lacking in resources. Together with them we develop an accord and work plan for accompanying them over the course of a set number of years. During this time we build capacity through substantial training, improve the school’s infrastructure, and provide access to seed capital and support to create a social business helping them along the road toward long-term financial independence.
The partner school model helps students:
o Develop their God-given potential
o Cultivate their sense of character and personal responsibility
o Become engaged citizens and community members
And helps the school:
o Engage teachers, parents, and students to continually improve their school
o Become sustainable long-term
o Share their learning with others to replicate success
Below is a list of the schools that Haiti Partners currently partners with. We are interested in developing relationships with individuals, groups and schools in the US and elsewhere to help us support these partner schools.

Partner School Goals
For our Partner Schools, we don’t pay for everything. Our goal is to create a sustainable and replicable model that will help ensure that in the future all of Haiti’s children will have access to quality education, not just some.
We find Haitians who are already doing a good job and we come alongside to support them with teacher and leadership training, materials, some construction and repair work, and training and money for social enterprise. We want to help them do what they’re doing better. It’s a partnership between the impressive Haitians who run the school and Haiti Partners. Here’s the list of goals for our Partner Schools:
