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

The COVID-19 pandemic has arrived in Haiti. There are already many confirmed deaths and thousands of confirmed cases, and there is good reason to fear the worst. Haiti’s weak state apparatus and poor health care system mean that official efforts to contain the virus will likely not succeed for long. It is truly a frightening time. 

While healthcare is not a primary part of Haiti Partners’ mission, we are doing everything we can to help our colleagues and the students and families that we work with to prevent and prepare for COVID-19. From creating easily shared Haitian Creole COVID-19 prevention videos and other digital materials, to assembling and delivering COVID-19 prevention kits, to making and distributing masks, to distributing 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.

We invite you to support our 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.

How Can You Help?

Become a Haiti Partner!

Everyday we see the potential for a paradigm shift in learning and leadership in Haiti. We see the beginnings of a new generation of students and leaders prepared to overcome the past and build a brighter tomorrow. Join us today to work toward this brighter future together.
