The Haiti Education Alliance, Inc. (THEA) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization formed by a diverse group of Christians unified by our shared calling to serve the Lord in Haiti. Cynthia Mudd, the founding president, was part of a medical mission team where she worked as an occupational therapist with those injured by the January 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince. After that intense trip and with the encouragement of the Manhattan Church of Christ, a group met to put our hearts and minds together to determine how we can best share God’s love and hope with those affected by such overwhelming devastation and help facilitate long-term, sustainable solutions.
As the hundreds of thousands of people affected by the earthquake throughout the country work to establish a new normal for their lives, it was clear the children needed and wanted to return to school.
