The main objective of Beautiful Haiti is to help children and young adults in need as well as orphans to fully develop and grow as individuals. Beautiful Haiti’s members are excited to be helping people because they believe that is one of the healthier ways to become successful is to help others to achieve and accomplish their goals and master their knowledge.
Beautiful Haiti was created to change the world by first focusing on Haiti. It is obvious that before 2010, Haiti was and still is one of the poorest countries in the world. On January 12, 2010 a devastating earthquake placed Haiti in even worse situation. Haiti needs help to recover as a nation. It is for the reason Beautiful Haiti exists, so we can help many children, orphans, and young adults which will prevent them from juvenile delinquency. We are a tax deductible registered 501(c) (3) non-profit organization in the state of New York.

On April 15, 1965, Fr. Barbieri founded COOPI. This is where a 50-year journey begins, during which COOPI and Italian international cooperation with all the many voices will grow and become together. But the history of COOPI begins before 1965, as early as 1961 when the young Jesuit Vincenzo Barbieri was sent by his superiors to study in Lyons at the Faculty of Theology, in view of a future departure for Chad as a missionary. In France, he meets a much more lively and open cultural environment than the one that permeated the Italian province in the years preceding the Second Vatican Council and comes into contact with international lay movements engaged for years in voluntary work in developing countries. In 1962 Barbieri refused to leave as a missionary and returned to Milan with the intention of training volunteers ready to leave for the south of the world. It is he who introduces the lay component into the missions.
