Check out the projects that support our work in Haiti and the
projects we manage to support our community in Haiti.
TEN FOR THEM
Hope to Haiti is currently operating four orphanages in Haiti. Each orphanage operational costs are between $1500 and $2000 a month to operate. We are calling this new effort the un-orphanage. We have identified several dozen children near our schools that have been left orphaned and / or abandoned. Many people have accepted these children into their homes. Our $10 for Them project will help these families support these children. Would you consider supporting this effort at $10, $20, $50 or even $100 a month to ensure each of these children will be fed on a daily basis.
$10 a month will help save a child’s life. Would you please consider supporting one of these precious children.

10 Cards of Hope?
First, we start with beautiful hand-drawn artwork from Haitian orphanages that we support printed on top quality recycled paper. And they come 10 to a pack. (Aha!)
HEART TO HAITI
Have you ever seen a child’s small fingers busily guiding a crayon over a sheet of paper? Or observed a child sinking their hands into a moist ball of clay, kneading and squeezing and forming sculptures? If yes, then you have seen the concentration on these children’s faces, and the joyful expressions of art explored. You have witnessed how deeply they are affected by experiencing creative art.
When a child creates, they are nourishing their entire being- training their linguistic, logical and mathematical skills, stimulating and developing imagination and critical thinking. Art is an amazing educational tool! It increases motivation to learn and heightens children’s self-esteem; it makes them feel good about what they have to say and how they say it and helps them to learn how to work cooperatively.
It is therefore vitally important to integrate Art into a child’s life. Sadly though, many children from deprived backgrounds, particularly in a developing country such as Haiti, are not given the time, space and resources to play and create. As soon as they are able to walk, they have to watch over their siblings while their parents are away working. As soon as their bodies are capable of manual work, they spend their entire days helping their parents to earn money. We at Hope to Haiti are committed to bring art opportunities and self-expression for the vulnerable children of Haiti.
H2H Art Therapy Project
The need for housing in Haiti is great, and rebuilding after one of the worst urban natural disasters in history will take time. Challenges to progress in the shelter sector include:
Unclear Land Tenure: According to Government of Haiti estimates, as much as 70 percent of Port-au-Prince’s pre-quake population lived in informal settlements.
In many cases, land tenure was governed by a range of informal arrangements involving renters and owners. This included multiple layers of ownership, where one person may have owned the land and another the building, while a third person rented living space. Identifying clear ownership is the crucial first step to rebuilding.
Lack of Governmental Capacity: The Government of Haiti continues to rebuild after many of its most experienced civil servants were killed in the earthquake.
Hope to Haiti will continue its strategic alliance with the Caring House Project Foundation to address this ongoing need. Through 2016 we have built 210 homes, 5 community centers, provided clean water, and livestock to help sustain our new communities.
Help us house Haiti’s people.
SCHOOL FEEDING PROGRAMS
EVERY DAY IS A STRUGGLE TO SURVIVE.
Many Haitian children are severely malnourished because they go day-to-day without food–or in an effort to fill their stomachs, they eat ashes, pebbles, goat feces or whatever they can find.
Hope to Haiti is focused on improving the lives of Haitians, especially the children suffering as they grow under these extreme hardships.
Astonishingly, one in ten Haitian children never live to see their fifth birthday. Haiti’s child mortality rate is among the worst in the world. For the poor, finding food is top priority. Many children and most adults do not have a full meal every day.
Hope to Haiti is taking food and water to some of the most remote villages on the island.
Children in our feeding programs receive a hot meal every day–that’s food for over a thousand children daily! For many, it’s the only meal they will eat that day. Beyond filling their bellies, these nutritious meals fuel their developing minds and bodies giving them a chance of reaching their full potential.
Please carefully consider becoming a partner.
Your support will save a life!
CLEAN WATER PROJECTS
The Problem:The UN estimates that almost one-tenth of the global disease burden could be prevented by improving water supply, sanitation, hygiene, and management of water resources.
But Haiti, like many developing nations around the world, is currently devastated by a lack of clean water and the systems that provide it.
Most water sources are contaminated with human waste because of the absence of a sewage sanitation system. Still, that dirty water is often used for cooking and drinking – exposing men, women, and children to the germs that cause cholera, typhoid, hepatitis, chronic diarrhea, and other waterborne diseases.
In Haiti, contaminated water is the leading cause of infant mortality and illness in children. Haiti has the highest infant mortality rate in the western hemisphere. The Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO) reported that more than half of all deaths in Haiti were due to water-borne gastrointestinal diseases. Nearly every water source in Haiti has become contaminated with human waste.
Cholera was introduced in Haiti in October 2010, According to the Pan American Health Organization, as of 21 November 2013, there had been 689,448 cholera cases in Haiti, leading to 8448 deaths.
A solution: Provide a community water source.
Bring clean water to Haiti.
