Could you use a little hope?

As we all struggle to keep our spirits up in these challenging times, we invite you to spend a few minutes to watch our latest video, Holding to Hope. This video highlights, with beautiful clips and images, the inspiring work that continues to take place in Haiti, despite current circumstances, and thanks to faithful supporters like you.

This video was created by the Our Story Team, a group of aspiring young Haitian storytellers led by Children’s Academy Co-founder, Merline Engle. It was edited by Luke Renner, an exceptional videographer and long-time friend of Haiti Partners. Thank you for watching.

Haiti Partners’ COVID-19 Response

While healthcare is not integral to Haiti Partners’ mission, we are doing everything we can to help the students and families that we work with to fight COVID-19. From creating easily shared Haitian Creole digital COVID-19 prevention materials, to assembling and delivering prevention kits, to making and distributing masks, to provided much-needed funds to our Partner Schools so they can respond in the way best for them, we are using our resources and network to the best of our ability to fight COVID-19 in Haiti.

Our most recent endeavor is the Home Gardens project (“Jaden Lakay” in Haitian Creole): a long-term response to the economic upheaval and resulting food crisis that COVID-19 is causing in Haiti. This project provides the families of all students and staff at the Children’s Academy with the materials and technical support they need to plant and maintain their own permaculture home gardens. In doing so, 200 families (1400 people) will be empowered to sustainably grow their own healthy food far into the future.

We invite you to support this work as we both adapt to COVID-19 and stay true to our mission to help Haitians change Haiti through education. Thank you for keeping Haiti’s students and families close to your heart in these difficult times.

We Believe in the Power of Education

Haiti Partners believes that Haiti’s greatest untapped resource of tomorrow are her millions of children. A resource far greater than solar, wind and waves combined. Tapping this enormous source of energy and creative potential for solving Haiti’s problems requires a new education and leadership paradigm.

How has a quality education at the Haiti Partners Children’s Academy
impacted Abigail’s development? Her mother, Geralda, explains:

What’s Holding Haiti Back?

Escaping a History Fraught with Injustice

Haiti’s long history of colonialism, slavery, and exploitation has hobbled its institutions and cultivated a passive acceptance of the status quo. In this context, progress has become a competitive game where one can only advance at the expense of another.

Why it Matters

Bridging the Gap

In our increasingly globalized, interconnected world, a loss of human potential in a developing country like Haiti becomes a loss for everyone. To bridge the gap, we need to bring people together, across borders in genuine partnership, to seek innovative solutions that benefit all of us.

The Way Forward

A Community of Changemakers

Over 25 years of in-country experience has taught us that the most fertile terrain for sustainable change in Haiti is through a high quality, community-based education that teaches students and parents active learning strategies and prepare them to be agents of change in their community and country.
