Women with disabilities remain one of the most marginalized communities in Haitian society.
Despite some higher education, because of societal issues, they remain hidden in Haitian society. The project aims to not only give them skills but also to empower them as individuals and as a group to form a support network and collaborate on business ideas that might lead to a self-sustaining enterprise It will also encourage the group to form a bond and work together.
Haiti Outreach is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization in the U.S. and a certified NGO with the Haitian government with the vision that Haiti become a developed country. Our mission is to collaborate with the people of Haiti to build community initiated and maintained projects that advance their development. Our Haitian staff works in rural communities to create clean water infrastructure, mostly wells and some basic water systems, that the community leaders are trained to maintain over many years. Part of this program includes a subscription fee to the water service so there are saved funds for future maintenance and repairs. We also conduct sanitation education and the promotion of latrines for each household. We are committed to long term sustainable development and are not a relief org.

Haiti Partners was founded in 2009 by John Engle and Kent Annan to help Haitians change Haiti through education. Many people have shaped who we are through their generosity and work. Our experience and programs go back to when John first moved to Haiti in 1991. Several of our core Haitian and American staff have been collaborating for more than a dozen years to develop the core programs and approach of our work. We draw on our experience as we keep pushing ahead toward our vision.

FONHOH a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization striving to promote and contribute to provide both access and quality education to children and teens living predominantly in remote rural areas of Haiti. Created in 2005 by Haitian and American educators in Massachusetts, FONHOH believes that education is the key to social development, a catalyst for success, and the plenitude of human dignity. Moreover, education access should not be a privilege, but one of basics human rights. In order to reach its goals, FONHOH seeks to work in collaboration with all sectors – government, nongovernmental organizations, businesses, and individuals – so as to bring education to rural Haiti, create conditions to reduce rural exodus which has led to overcrowded schools and poor quality education in urban areas.
