Association Arche d’Haïti (AAH)
Address: 35, Rue Rigaud, Petion-Ville, Haïti
Business Genre:
Long Business Description:

En 1975, Monsieur Cantave, alors ambassadeur d’Haïti au Canada, invite Jean Vanier, fils de l’Honorable Georges Vanier, gouverneur général du Canada de 1959 à 1967, à venir fonder une communauté de L’Arche en Haïti.

Dès l’origine, les Haïtiens prennent en main la fondation de L’Arche sur l’île.

Le 8 juillet, quelques mois après une première visite de Jean Vanier en Haïti, le premier foyer ”Kay Sen Josèf” ouvre ses portes en accueillant Jean-Robert Bélizaire qui devient ainsi l’un des fondateurs de L’Arche Haïti.

Jacqueline et Jean-Robert

De 1975 à 1978, Jean Vanier vient 3 fois par année en Haïti. Comme il était arrivé en France lors de la fondation de la toute première communauté de L’Arche en 1964, de nombreux jeunes attirés par le leadership de Jean Vanier fréquentent L’Arche Carrefour. Parmi ces jeunes, il y a Jaqueline Sanon, actuelle directrice de la communauté.

En 1978, L’Arche est invitée dans le village de Chantal à 180km au sud-ouest de Port-au-Prince. L’Arche Chantal institue alors un programme de visites à domicile pour apporter aide et soutien aux familles ayant un enfant touché par un handicap mental. La communauté de Chantal voit le jour en 1980.

Avec le même objectif, L’Arche Carrefour fonde ensuite l’école Kè Konten dans le but de créer un service permettant la prise en charge du développement d’enfants souffrant d’un handicap mental.

L’Arche Haïti est membre de la Fédération internationale de L’Arche qui compte aujourd’hui plus de 139 communautés dans 35 pays.

Le 12 janvier 2010, au moment du tremblement de terre, L’Arche Carrefour était très insérée dans son milieu. La peur du handicap mental s’était largement estompée pour laisser place au respect et à l’amitié. De nombreuses personnes du voisinage ont trouvé à L’Arche un abri sécuritaire durant les longs mois qui ont suivi cette terrible catastrophe.

Après avoir vu ses bâtiments détruits, la communauté de Carrefour inaugurait ses nouveaux locaux, le 13 mars 2011, grâce à la générosité et la solidarité de nombreux donateurs et donatrices.

Bureau de Nutrition et Développement (BND)
Address: Rue 3, #23 bis Parc Industriel SHODECOSA Route Nationale # 1
Business Genre:
Long Business Description:

In 1986 the Bureau de Nutrition et Développement (BND) was formed by Rob J. Padberg at the behest of Caritas Nederland and COHAN (Comité de Coopération Haitiano-Néerlandaise). The latter was determined, in view of the increasing size of the program and a general re-orientation of her overall activities, to separate themselves from the Food Aid program they were executing with the assistance of the EEC and the European NGO Caritas Nederland/Stichting Mensen in Nood. However, COHAN was looking to find another organization which could continue this important program in Haiti, a program which existed since the early 1970’s. At the same time two other programs were operational in Haiti, funded by the EEC under the auspices of Father Sjef Claessens/Secofa and Father Laurence Bohnen/Pères Salésiens (Petites Ecoles du Père Bohnen), assisted respectively by the European NGO’s Caritas Secours International (Brussels, Belgium) and PROTOS (Ghent, Belgium). These projects were actively seeking an opportunity to transfer their food aid activities to another NGO due to a lack of managerial expertise and the difficult socio-political climate of the late 1980’s. BND is thus a Haitian, non-profit, apolitical, non-confessional, Non-Governmental Organization. BND operates under the laws of the Republic of Haïti.
