H is for Haiti

Come help us raise money to send Haitian orphans to school!

H is for Haiti’s mission is to foster positive change in Haiti by providing quality education for orphaned, abandoned and underprivileged children.

After traveling to Haiti on a service mission to aid in the construction of an orphanage, the founding members of H is for Haiti were struck by a devastating reality:  without access to education, the beautiful, vibrant, and curious children at the orphanage would stand little chance of thriving as adults in an already impoverished country.  

Basic primary and secondary school education is available only to those children whose families have the means to pay because there is virtually no public education system in Haiti.  In fact, approximately 50 percent of primary school aged children in Haiti are not enrolled in school.  Without private funding, abandoned and orphaned Haitian children have no chance of attending school.

H is for Haiti does not simply fund education; it is committed to ensuring that our children have access to quality education.  Less than 40% of schools in Haiti are accredited and only 15% of teachers at the primary level have even basic teacher qualifications.  H is for Haiti is committed to finding the best schools and providing individualized support to each child we fund.  Members of the board will track each student’s progress over time, meeting with teachers and principals biannually to assess students’ individual needs.  

H is for Haiti’s scope is currently relatively small: we fund education for approximately 60 children at a single orphanage ( But the need is great, and as resources grow, we hope to have a much broader impact in Haiti.

H is for Haiti is 501c3 nonprofit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
