ATD Quart Monde
Long Business Description:

ATD Fourth World has been working in one of the most underprivileged areas of Port-au-Prince for over 25 years. Our team consists of 11 Volunteer Corps members, eight of whom are Haitian.

Our work in Haiti seeks to give those living in extreme poverty the ability to access medical care, to educate their children, to meet, and to speak out. Our projects aim to give the families we work with the ability to overcome daily emergencies, and to develop long term projects.

Our projects with small children include Bébés Bienvenus (“Babies Welcome”), gatherings for children under three years of age and their parents, seeking to encourage the nutrition, health, and education of small children. Graines d’Espoir (“Seeds of Hope”), welcomes children from four to six years old to help prepare them for beginning primary school.

Our health projects include a collaboration with a Haitian NGO, Service Œcuménique d’Entraide (SOE), to guarantee access to healthcare for the most vulnerable families through a micro-insurance system.

Our education and training projects include a Street Library run in partnership with LAKOU Don Bosco, focused on boys who live on the streets. A computer workshop works with unemployed young people aged 18 to 30 who don’t have training. Knowledge sharing projects during school vacations bring together young people and artists. A reading group meets with university students to discuss questions relating to extreme poverty.

The Comite de rassemblement Quart Monde meets once a month to discuss questions relating to our team’s work and lives. Larger gatherings take place related to events like the 2010 earthquake or the research on the MDGs.

Beautiful Haiti Inc
Address: 650 MAIN ST APT 6DD
NEW ROCHELLE, NY 10801
Long Business Description:

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.

Medico International e.V
Address: medico international
Lindleystr. 15
60314 Frankfurt am Main
Long Business Description:

For over 45 years the aid and human rights organisation medico international has fought for social change. In solidarity with socially excluded and marginalised people in the global South, medico works to promote good living conditions for people which maximise health and social justice. The goal is not merely to reduce poverty, want and violence, but to identify and overcome their causes. The problem in the world is not too little aid, but rather the conditions that make more and more aid necessary.

For medico, aid is part of comprehensive political action in solidarity. Our efforts to support emancipatory processes are made in the awareness of the ambivalent consequences of aid. We operate on the maxim ‘Defend, criticise and overcome aid‘. The core issue is cooperation in partnership with actors in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Rather than exporting aid materials, staff or projects, we support local structures and initiatives. Our partners are not passive recipients of aid – instead, they are competent actors, themselves organising aid in the struggle for better living conditions and fighting for the human right to health.
